Julie's Sweet and Sour Hawaiian Haystacks


 THESE Sweet and Sour Hawaiian Haystacks are a fun, light, scrumptious dinner that is FAST and EASY! They were so good and I LOVED them so much that I could have eaten them 2 or 3 times in the same week, but I refrained from it...thought I would hold off as to not make everyone sick of them. A definite hit at our house, I'm guessing they will be at your's too!


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
slivered almonds
grated cheese
coconut
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!
