Rice is topped with chicken in a cream sauce, then garnished with cheese, tomato, onion, pineapple and coconut. This melody of flavors mixed together sounds weird but the combination put together brings delicious results!!! This recipe was given to me by my aunt 20 years ago and I’ve been making it for my family ever since.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups long grain white rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ¾ cup chopped tomatoes
  • ¾ cup chopped green onions
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks, drained
  • ½ cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chow mein noodles

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place rice and water into a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Set aside.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, place the chicken breasts into a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the water, reserving liquid, and shred.
  3. 3 Return the shredded chicken to the saucepan, and stir in soup. Stir in about 1 cup of the reserved water, or until the sauce reaches your desired consistency. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. 4 To serve, place one cup of cooked rice onto a plate, spoon some of the chicken mixture over it, then top with small amounts of Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green onions, pineapple chunks, coconut and chow mein noodles until you have a happy mountain. Now grab a fork and ENJOY!

  1. Here is a tip to make this a very easy dish: place the chicken breasts in a slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours. No liquid is needed--they'll be fine. Once they are very tender mash them up right in the slow cooker with a potato masher. Easiest way in the world to shred chicken - Read more ...
