This is a classic and fun recipe for children because they are able to choose what they want to add to the "haystack." This recipe is from my mother-in-law who acquired it from her friend Carol Dean. You can use no-fat or low-fat ingredients for the sauce if you want to make it a low-fat recipe. I prefer full-fat on this recipe.
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cups cooked, diced chicken
Mix together soup, sour cream, cheese, and mayonnaise in saucepan and heat until cheese melts and the mixture begins to bubble. Add chicken to mixture. Put a mound of rice on individual plates and top with chicken mixture. Put the below-mentioned "haystack toppings" in individual bowls and top the "haystacks" with the toppings.
Tomatoes, green onions, black olives, pineapple tidbits, coconut, slivered almonds, and chow mein noodles.
It is "H" week at Alphabe-Thursday and I will be posting this recipe with School Marm Matlock where you can find lots of other thoughtful and fun "H" posts.
