Crock Pot Hawaiian Haystacks

I will admit, when I tried these for the first time way back in Freshman year of collage at a friend's house I was very skeptical of the combination of flavors. When I saw all the toppings neatly organized out on the table I was weirded out but after that first bite I learned my assumptions were terribly wrong. I now love this meal and crave it more often then most of my other crock pot recipes which is why I cannot believe I haven't shared it before now!

Please, before you knock it give it a try. If anything you'll appreciate how much work this dinner doesn't take, it really shouldn't count as making dinner.

3 frozen chicken breasts
2 cans cream of chicken soup
rice (white or brown, quick or not, doesn't matter, your preference!)

Optional Toppings:
grated cheddar cheese
crushed/chunked/tid-bit can pineapple (fresh would be fine)
sliced celery
green onion
shredded coconut
chow mein noodles
soy sauce

Directions: Place frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of a crock pot, cover with cream of chicken soup and cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3. Once chicken breasts are cooked through shred and return to cream mixture. If cooking non-frozen chicken breasts you can add some milk to the soup once chicken is cooked to thin the consistency. Cook rice according to directions.

Place rice on bottom of plate/bowl, top with chicken mixture and any or all optional toppings! Below you will see how we assemble our haystacks!

Have you had these or something like it? What toppings do you use or do you think you'd try?

  1. That seems to be the way with Hawaiian food - it doesn't look great and it sure doesn't seem to go together, but it's still delicious. Except for poi. That was terrible!

  2. OMG, my mother-in-law makes these and the first time she did that for me, I seriously felt the same way you did about all the toppings! However, they're super yummy!! I love that you provided a way to do this with the crockpot (best invention ever!) I will have to try my hand at them :)

  3. Oh my goodness! My mom used to make this when I was a little girl and I never even thought of it until I saw this post. Definitely making this. Thanks so much for sharing.


I love reading your comments so please don't be shy! I'll usually even invite myself over after you've dropped a note to see what you're up to!
