Glutton's Chicken and Rice With Cashews

I made it tonight, and am eating it as I write. It is based on an old recipe a friend gave to me about a year ago. I love it, but watch the cooking time. The recipe I got from my friend required the oven be set at 450 degrees for about an hour. He had a gas stove; I have an electric one and it seems to cook a lot faster. Maybe you all can help me refine it.
