    Beautiful dish. I have made this several times now. My kids are only little, so there is always lots of left overs... Which I freeze, with the cous cous, and it reheats so well!

    Delicious flavour! Made 6 decent serves. Took at least 45 mins to make though and pumpkin was still not ready after 20 mins so had to zap it in the microwave, perhaps could start steaming when onions are being cooked?

    Fabulous and fantastic - straight off the streets of Marrakech! Put in as much coriander as you want and a wedge of lemon for everyone to squeeze over their serve. Suggestion: cut the chicken pieces a little larger so they don't shred too much. Pumpkin required longer so it was easier to microwave or perhaps start steaming them earlier.💨 🎃
