Perfect recipe for using up leftover chicken and rice. No cream of anything soup required! Using simplified bechamel and tarragon, this casserole isn't quite run of the mill.

Nice to have a casserole that doesn't call for canned cream. I used light cream instead of heavy, and that was plenty rich enough. I also used chopped toasted pecans instead of cashews. A good recipe but needs a little more flavor; next time I'll try fresh tarragon and plenty of it, and I had to add salt, but that's a nice change from too-salty casseroles. Read More
