I omitted the peas and carrots and water chestnuts, and added a diced onion and chopped celery, which is how my Mom always made it. I added extra garlic, and used chicken broth and a splash of sherry instead of water. Be sure to use a 9 x 13 pan, though. I only had a 9 x 9 available, and it's been in for 45 minutes and the rice still isn't cooked. I think the mixture is too deep to get enough heat to cook well.
