Coconut Milk Hawaiian Haystack Recipe

hawaiian haystacks1

Before I moved to Utah I had never heard of Hawaiian Haystacks, now they are one of my favorite dinnertime meals. I spent months played with the sauce recipe until I got it just right.

Here is what you need for the sauce:

1/2 butter

2-3 cloves garlic, diced

1/3 cup flour

1 can coconut milk

1 pint half and half

1/2 tsp salt

Shredded chicken

First melt the butter with the garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add flour and make a paste. Slowly stir in half and half. You can use milk, the sauce just won’t be as creamy. Add can of coconut milk, shredded chicken, salt, and bring to boil.

Serve the sauce over rice with toppings. Here are some of our favorites:

Its the perfect meal for large company and makes delicious leftovers. Often I will double the sauce recipe and freeze it for another day. It freezes really well.
