      Omitted wine and nutmeg.
      Cubed rather than shredded my chicken.
      Added a bit extra red pepper flakes.
      Really liked the cream sauce from evaporated milk. I don't keep heavy cream on hand which is called for in other similar recipes and this worked really well.
      Family favorite!!!

      This was very creamy. We really enjoyed it and felt great that we weren't eating heavy cream.
