  • 2 ounce cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup pineapple, canned in 100% juice
  • 1 jumbo black olives, canned
  • 3 stalk green onion
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1/4 cup almonds, sliced
  • 1 cup Noodles, chinese, chow mein
  • 1 medium tomato, red
  • 1 medium bell pepper, green


  • Cook chicken on the stove top in boiling water. Cube or shred as desired.
  • Cook rice according to directions.
  • In a large sauce pan, saute the onion in the olive oil until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for about one minute, stirring, until fragrant.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to combine. Cook over medium heat for one minute.
  • Slowly whisk in the milk and chicken broth. Cook, stirring constantly with a whisk, and bring the sauce to a simmer over medium. Add the salt and pepper.
  • Add the chicken and simmering, stirring the sauce frequently, until the sauce has thickened, about 5-8 minutes.
  • At this point if you want the sauce to thicken more, in a small bowl whisk together 2 Tbsp flour and 2 Tbsp water until smooth, you don’t want lumps. It should look like a paste. Drizzle a little of the flour mixture at a time while whisking into to sauce mixture until desired thickness is reached.
