5 31 18... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/258550/jeremiahs-cashew-chicken-casserole/... No major changes. Regular rice not jasmine. After tasting sauce added 1/8t nutmeg & garlic powder. 'Think it could've used less rice & sauce - or more chicken. My tarragon was very old verrrry. I still used a T & I'm thinking a fresh T would be too much; but what do I know?! Heavy whipping cream sure gives a rich flavor. This to me uh pretty bland. 'Not that it was bad just needs some help. Maybe a little sherry or white wine? Soy sauce?
