This was the winning recipe in 1982 in the Athens, Texas Black-Eyed Pea Cookoff. A Southern tradition says that you will have good luck all year long if you eat black-eyed peas on New Years. This is an interesting dish to serve, but I don't know how much luck it will bring you! It may be made using left over roasted chicken. I didn't include cooking time for the chicken or rice in the recipe.
