Hawaiian Haystacks

This is Chad's mom's gravy recipe that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!!!

Hot, cooked rice (about 3 c. uncooked minute brown rice)

1 Pkg Southeastern Mills Country Chicken Gravy Mix- make it into gravy then add:
1 large (or two small) cans cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. pineapple juice (from can that you'll use for the topping)
1/4 c. sugar (opt. I don't add)
big pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp of basil
2 c. cooked, shredded chicken

slivered almonds
green/red/yellow peppers
green onions
shredded carrots
pineapple, crushed or tidbits
chow mein noodles
cheddar cheese

Serves about 8

... and if you want to cheat, just use cream of chicken soup with some milk in it for the gravy! Everything else looks the same as mom's recipe, doesn't it?

Yes, but you really should try the gravy mix with it. I used to think the cream of chicken soup way was great until I tried this version. I think the sauce is sooooo yummy!!! But maybe I just don't love it quite as cream of chicken soup-y. And I LOVE the basil and red pepper in it! It gives a new level of deliciousness :)
