My family has made this for many many years. In fact it's my fav meal. I like to make this in the crock pot. What I do is boil chicken breast and then put them whole in the crock pot and use cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom. Use the remaining ingredients listed in this recipe (I use basil only though). I will also add some baby carrots and fresh button mushrooms and let it cook for about 3-4 hrs on low or until you can shred the chicken easily. The "soup" becomes rich and super yummy. My fav toppings are celery green onion tomatoes cheese chow mien noodles and a few pineapple chunks. Sooooo good!! Read More

Did I do something wrong? I followed the recipe exactly and the sauce was awful. Extremely bland. The toppings were good choices but anyone can chop a few veggies. This was really a disappointment compared to other Hawaiian haystacks I ve had in the past. I have no idea why this was so highly rated. Read More

Very easy and delicious! Had my own chicken chunks (which made it easier). Made up the gravy (this really is what makes the recipe yummy). Then you add whatever you prefer on top. Personally I used what the recipe called for. It was wonderful. Thanks for posting "J". Read More

Oh folks! This is the best! But the thing that takes this over the top is a nice light fluffy iced cinnamon roll! --- I've made a version of this for years! We call it Javanese. I was taught to use leftover turkey and turkey gravy instead of chicken & mushroom soup. Families I know who use this as an 'after Thanksgiving' meal enjoy it more than the big feast!!! We personally like to toast the coconut and we never used chow mein noodles and I think I'll continue to pass on them (since they are fried) but I'm sure they would taste really good in this dish. Really you can't go wrong with this type of dish..... YUM! Read More

My son asked for this and while I thought it looked absolutely gross it turned out great. I already am going to make it again. I just changed a few things to fit our personal taste but the recipe was a great way to start. Read More

Made this recipe EXACTLY as written. Never had anything like this so I can't compare. I hated it hubby liked it so 3 stars. I found the chicken mixture heavy and tasting like paste. None of the flavors mingled! I like the idea. If I ever make it again: I will use fresh mushrooms a pineapple chicken base and make the chicken a little more tangy. Read More

Very good. I made it as written. The basil & broth were different than my mother's "ad-lib" version. I think I like this recipe better than my mother's! Shhh... Read More
