Hoppin Johns' cousin Limping Susan

Hoppin John has a cousin and her name is Limping Susan. Apparently John likes black eyed peas and Susan doesn't. This version of the recipe is from a Helen Corbitt book:
Limping Susan
1/4 cup finely diced salt pork
1 cup rice
1 onion, chopped fine
3 cups chicken broth or consomme
2 cups mashed canned tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
Cooked okra
Slivers of cooked chicken, optional
Fry pork until crisp. Add rice and stir until rice is golden. Add onion and cook until soft. Add broth. Cover and cook until rice is done, about 1 hour. Add tomatoes and parsley and seasonings, fork-stir and bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Just before serving add cooked okra and slivers of leftover chicken.
