We like to serve food that allows people to tick and chose the items they like.(if you don't like onions, just leave them off)
This was Kirt's serving- it looks completely different from mine!
Everyone's does and that is the beauty of this meal. People can pick and choose from an assortment of toppings and customize the meal to their taste buds.
6 bone-in or boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 large onion, sliced
2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans, cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup cour cream
1/4-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
6 cups cooked rice
Any or all of the following:
celery, thinly sliced
grated cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
green onions, chopped
green pepper, chopped
mandarin orange slices
-boil the chicken in salted water with the onion in a large pot
-remove the onion-dice the chicken, save the broth
-in a large saucepan, mix the soups, thin them with some of the broth

To serve the haystacks, put rice on individual plates, then the chicken mixture and let everyone add the toppings they desire.
