Hawiian Haystacks....GLUTEN free style

Hawaiian Haystacks
Yes, good ol' Americana style dinner and YES YOU can make it! It's easy. Almost as easy as opening up a can of cream of chicken soup. Well, ALMOST that easy ;) If your family is like my family it would be a favorite meal for Mom to make. It's a mom favorite because there is really minimal preparation and it's a great way to get your family to eat some veggies that they normally wouldn't.
So here is the recipe rundown:
Gluten Free Hawiiain Haystacks
3 tablespoons butter
3-5 tablespoons sweet rice flour
1/2 cup diced onions
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup chicken broth or stock
1-2 tablespoons butter or oil
2 chicken breasts or chicken thighs
salt and pepper to taste
Now for the fun stuff:
cooked rice
pineapple chunks
shredded cheese
sliced black olives
chopped tomatoes
diced green onions
diced bell peppers (any color)
for the crunchy stuff....gluten free Fritos :)
In a medium sized saucepan on medium heat melt the butter and saute onions until tender. Add roughly 3 tablespoons sweet rice flour and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the milk whisking until smooth. Keep whisking until sauce thickens to a paste (about 1-2 minutes). Then slowly whisk in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Keep simmering until sauce begins to thicken. Add more sweet rice flour if needed to thicken to a gravy like consistency. Once sauce reaches the the desired consistency, lower heat to low to keep warm. Then in a medium sized fry pan, warm up a little butter or oil then cook the cubed chicken. Once cooked, add to the chicken sauce.
To serve, place rice on a plate then top with chicken and sauce then add your desired toppings. Enjoy!
