Hawaiian Haystacks

This is one of those make up as you go, add what you have, type of meals, made entirely out of staple foods!
For the chicken and gravy base I just cooked chicken in my crock-pot on low with a little water, veggies and seasonings.  6 hours later I drained & rinsed the chicken and put it back in the crock-pot with cream of chicken soup (or cream of mushroom or both!!) thinned with some chicken stock.
Used my rice cooker to make about 3 cups white rice 
then prepared my toppings...

crunchy chow mein noodles
shredded cheddar cheese
toasted coconut
toasted almonds
green onions
Mandarin oranges

anything tropical really or with and interesting texture (crunchy, chewy etc!)

Just pile it all on there - they go together surprisingly well
for little kids I make individual piles, they seem to take to it a bit better if it is all separated, maybe so they can eat all of the cheese and oranges and no celery idk!

Erin, I am blaming my craving on both you and my baby right now. I want this so bad! I need details on how to make the gravy. Everything else.... piece of cake. hahaha
