Macro Friendly Hawaiian Haystacks
A sweet and savory dinner that takes shortcuts from the store to get a fast and macro-friendly meal on the table. While it might not be the *healthiest* my kids adore this meal and the macros really aren't too bad, either. The chicken is really quite plain on its own but comes ALIVE with the toppings. I know it seems weird, but trust me. It's so good.
For the Chicken and Gravy
- 1 can cream of chicken soup 10.5 oz size
- 10 oz nonfat milk I used Fairlife
- 2 cans Canned Chicken 2-12.5 oz cans, drained (I used Kirkland Signature from Costco)
- Cooked white or brown rice
- grated cheddar cheese
- mandarin oranges
- chow mein noodles
- toasted almonds
- chopped green onions
- In a medium sized cold pot, whisk cream of chicken soup with milk until smooth. Add in well drained chicken and stir. Heat over medium heat until hot.
- Serve over rice with any desired toppings. (Mine are pineapple, coconut, cheese, peas and chow mein. I know it sounds so weird, but its really good!)
The more accurate macros for 1 serving (1/4th) of this recipe *just the chicken and gravy* are as follows: 205 calories, 6.8g F/7.5g C/28.4g P. Add the toppings and rice seperately.
