    3 cups cooked brown rice (about 1/2 cup per person)
    3 chicken breasts grilled, sauteed, or boiled, and shredded
    2 cans cream of chicken soup
    1 can chicken broth
    dried parsley and pepper to taste
    Suggested toppings:
    pineapple tidbits fresh or canned
    Mandarin oranges
    chopped tomatoes
    diced celery
    frozen peas thawed
    any color bell pepper diced
    cooked, chopped brocoli
    shredded carrots
    diced green onions
    shredded coconut
    shredded cheddar cheese
    cashews, peanuts, or slivered almonds
    fresh mushrooms
    raisins or craisins
    chow mein noodles

    Cook the chicken by whichever method you prefer, then shred. Prepare the rice according to the package directions. Chop and dice vegetables, fruits and put in small bowls. I threw my celery in with the chicken to saute and cooked the brocoli in the microwave for a couple of minutes. In a saucepan, combine the soup and chicken broth. Add parsley and pepper to taste. Heat thoroughly whisking until smooth to make the gravy. Add the shredded chicken and stir.


    Place a serving of rice and chicken/gravy on each plate, then let your guests add their own toppings according to what they like. Feel free to come up with your own topping ideas. I made this for my grandkids tonight and they devoured it. They thought it was especially fun to choose their own combination of toppings for their dinner. Note: I did make them choose at least one veggie.

    That really looks good! I think that kids usually eat better when they have a little say in the matter. Trying to force them never works!

    My Haystack recipe add some curry to the soup mixture and Chow Mein Noodles to the add-ons. The noodles add a great crunch.
    This recipe is fun to do with a group. Assign different items to your members to bring and you provide the chicken soup and rice part. Everyone wonders what you are going to eat, and then are surprised at the delicious meal.
