Black-Eyed Pea Chicken Salad

2 ½ cups chopped cooked Springer Mountain Farms Chicken
1 ½ cups fresh or frozen black eyed peas, cooked and drained
1 cup chopped organic celery
1 cup chopped green or red bell peppers
½ cup chopped red or Vidalia onion
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup plain yogurt
¼ to ½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp organic black pepper
chopped parsley, optional

Combine chicken, black eyed peas, celery, chopped peppers, and onion in a large bow; mix gently. Combine mayonnaise, yogurt, salt, and pepper in small bowl; blend well.

Toss mayonnaise mixture with chicken mixture. Spoon salad mixture evenly into centers of red bell pepper halves. Garnish with parsley.

Note: A black eyed pea is a bean, not a pea. Black eyed peas are small, tan beans that take their name from the black eye-shaped mark on the inner curve of the bean.
