Hawaiian Haystacks (Crock pot sauce)

I have always loved Hawaiian Haystacks.  You don't really need a recipe for it, except for the sauce. There are so many sauce recipes, but this is the one I used because I had an open can of chicken broth and evaporated milk in my fridge that needed to be used.   I also love using a crock pot because I don't have to cook the chicken beforehand and continually stir the pot.  I am all about ease.  The less work I have to do the more time I can spend with my family.  I forgot to defrost my chicken before hand so I put it in frozen and it turned out just fine.  Another great thing about Hawaiian Haystacks is that I normally have all the ingredients I need to make it last minute since the toppings can always vary slightly.

Hawaiian Haystack Ingredients:

Sauce Ingredients:
*  4 boneless skinless chicken breast
* 1 c. chicken broth
* 2 (10 3/4 oz.) cans cream of chicken soup
* 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk

6 cups cooked rice

* Cheese
* Pineapple crushed or tidbits
* Celery
* Olives
* Diced tomatoes
* Chinese noodles
* Peppers
* Other favorites

Hawaiian Haystack Toppings
Directions for sauce:
Place chicken in greased slow cooker/crock pot.  Combine all ingredients and pour over chicken.  Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.  Shred chicken.

Serve over hot rice with toppings. 

This little cutie thought the little bowl of cheese was his own personal bowl and loaded it up with all of his other favorite toppings.  Love my little chef helper.
