I love this meal and was searching for an easy recipe for it. It's delicious! I used some chicken broth as well as milk to make the soup more gravy-like. Also used a few spices on the chicken. As for the toppings we also added olives. I definitely recommend this recipe and will be making this again. Read More

The first time I made these Haystacks I followed the recipe even though I cut the ingredients in half since it was just for 3 people. Very tasty and if you've set your ingredients out and do the chopping prep ahead of time it's not a big deal to put together. The second time I made it was for a 'girl friends' birthday luncheon with an island flair. I made the following changes to play up the island theme: For a true Hawaiian flair.. substitute cubed ham steak and shrimp for the chicken and use cream of shrimp soup. Reserve the drained pineapple juice to use also for some added sweetness (instead of milk). Mandarin oranges can add some zest as well. I had everything set out in bowls so the guests could build their individual stacks the way they wanted with the sauce rice chow mein & rice noodles pineapple mandarin oranges coconut and slivered almonds. The birthday crowd RAVED and my husband asked for his share for dinner. Read More

Hubby & child could care less for the green bell & celery but I think the flavors together are amazing. Meant to be scooped & ate not picked at from the top. Either with or without bell & celery creates an amazing meal. Didnt last long at our house as everyone scraped their bowls clean. Mmm mmm good! Read More
