Hawaiian Haystacks


My brother would hate this recipe. He believes that fruit should never touch anything except more fruit. I am finding as I grow older that I like strange combinations of food. Take potato salad for instance. Who would think to put dill pickles and potatoes in the same dish. I would never top my baked potato with relish. And certainly not with mustard and mayo... I hate mustard and mayo. But mix all that stuff together and I just can't keep from eating it with a juicy hamburger and some watermelon. I digress in favor of summer time barbecues.


Today the subject is using up that yummy Cream of Chicken Soup in the most delicious way. In my family's favorite supper. I suppose it is called Hawaiian because it has coconut and pineapple on top and rice on bottom. But no matter what it is called, it is delicious.



Hawaiian Haystacks
1 cup of sour cream
1 T dry ranch mix
2 cups of shredded chicken
2 cups cooked Royal Basmati Rice (White or Brown)
Heat the soup, add the sour cream and ranch mix, then stir in the chicken. Simmer until all ingredients are warm.
 
Toppings:
 
 
Fresh pineapple (canned works too)
Mandarin Orange Slices
Shredded Coconut
Shredded Cheese
Cashews or Almonds
Dried Cranberries or Golden Raisins
Diced Green onion
Cayenne Pepper
 
Make a bed of rice on your plate. Top with the chicken gravy. Then add cheese. Pile on the other toppings. Sprinkle with Cayenne.
 
The flavor combinations may sound a bit strange, But give them a chance big brother! You just might like it.

  4. We've tried this before. I like it, but my husband doesn't do fruit with chicken. It looks good though and is a great way to stretch the budget. I wonder if a Mexican version might work for him. :)

    Thank you for sharing your posts at the HomeAcre Hop. We'd love to have you back again today:

    1. Yea, I get the chicken and fruit thing for sure. I have seen a recipe for a Mexican version. That gives me a good idea. I will try that out. Spanish rice, chicken, topped with cheese, green chilis, onion and avocado. mmm. Dinner!

    I need to check out this homemade cream soup you have. I'd love a good alternative since we haven't been eating canned cream soups anymore. Not gonna lie, I miss them.
