How to Make Hawaiian Haystacks


  1. How to make it

    Mix the soups together and bring to a simmer. Add chicken and simmer for 10 mins to heat the chicken thorougly.
    To Serve:
    Ladle chicken and sauce over rice and top with any combination of the toppings. Caution, this makes a big serving so start out easy with the rice and chicken with sauce as this builds up when adding the toppings.
    This is a very popular recipe in Utah, not only with households, but restaurants as well.
    This is such an addictive dish and a big crowd pleaser. I double the recipe and it's still not enough to leave for leftovers!
