I have recently teamed up with Shirley J to do one of my favorite things … develop new recipes! This one is an oldie, but a goodie. I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love Hawaiian Haystacks.
Do you remember when I first told you guys about whisk bliss? If you don’t remember, Whisk Bliss is a universal cooking base similar to the bechamel mother sauce. It’s a delicious creamy base for any sauce, gravy, soup, etc. Whisk Bliss is perfect to use to create your own cream of chicken soup at home.
This recipe can be thrown in the slow cooker, or made in about 15-20 minutes on the stovetop. It’s definitely a family favorite dinner of ours. My kids don’t even like all the toppings, but they scarf the chicken & sauce!

- 1 cup milk
- 1 ½ tsp Shirley J Chicken Bouillon
- ½ cup Shirley J Whisk Bliss
