A Hawaiian haystack (also known as a "chicken sundae") is a type of haystack. It is a convenience cuisine dish composed of a rice base and several toppings. It is prepared by topping rice with toppings such as chicken, chicken gravy, diced pineapple, diced tomatoes, Chinese noodles, cheese, and celery. Traditionally, each topping is prepared in its own dish and presented buffet-style, then added on top of the rice as desired.
It is popular in the Western United States both as a school lunch and as a quick, customizable meal for family dinners.
