Julie's Sweet and Sour Hawaiian Haystacks
6 cups steamed rice (brown or white...whatever you like, we like white)
3 c. cooked, boneless chicken (I used boiled chicken breast...use what you like)
1 can pineapple tidbits, drained
2 small cans mandarin oranges, drained
sweet and sour sauce (recipe below)
*almonds, cheese and coconut amounts are "as desired"
Sweet and Sour Sauce:
1 1/3 c. vinegar
1 3/4 c. sugar
1 3/4 c. catsup
2 1/4 c. COLD water
7 T. cornstarch
2 1/3 T. salt
Add all ingredient into a medium saucepan. Cook on medium high, stir continually until thickened. *sauce will get a "shiny" look to it as it thickens. Serve.
Place desired amount of rice (per one person serving) in a bowl. Add chicken, pineapple, oranges, almonds, coconut and grated cheese. Top with sweet and sour sauce. ENJOY!
