This recipe is said to have originated in Brunswick County, Virginia, in the 1800s. We spiced it up with a little smoked Spanish paprika (available at gourmet specialty stores and some supermarkets). Use rotisserie chicken to speed up preparation. The strong, smoky flavors in this dish pair well with Champagne or sparkling wine. It's a delicious combination that could become a regular autumn weeknight treat.
