"I needed to use up some chicken, and we had been given a lot of pumpkins...so I began to look for a recipe which would take advantage of my ingredients. However, everything I found was quite spicy and knew would not go over well with my grandchildren. I then came across a recipe which seemed to have promise, and used it as the basis for creating this...a new family favorite! I hope you enjoy as much as my family did." — Bubbe

2 (14.5 ounce) cans
1 1/2 pounds

1 (15 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
fresh pumpkin, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
salt, or to taste
This was a great way to use my leftover pumpkins from Halloween. I didn't have chicken, so I used pork shoulder instead; also, I cooked this dish overnight on my slow cooker's low setting for 8 hours. After it cooked, I added a little black pepper to taste. Otherwise, I followed this recipe and it came out great! Great flavor and a warm, hearty meal on a cold day. Thanks for the recipe!
My ended up very bland and not to my liking.
I just threw everything in the crockpot, raw chicken and all, and cooked on low for 5 hours. Although I did use 1/2 can pure pumpkin instead and left out the tomatoes, coriander, and cornstarch b/c I didn't have it. I added 1/2 cup water instead of 1/4 cup. Added some garlic and cayenne pepper. So yummy and healthy!
I was worried about the amount of liquid (specifically the lack of) in the beginning but it turned out great. Only thing I will change next time is use less cinnamon because I am sensitive to it. Otherwise, a great dish for a cool Autumn Sunday evening!
I made this recipe as stated, and it was delicious. I used home canned tomatoes, not drained. The only thing I'd change is cut the pumpkin in smaller cubes. Cutting and peeling the pumpkin was a drag, but worth it.
Also, it's been mentioned people used leftover Halloween pumpkins. Really, sugar pie pumpkins is what you'd want to cook with for best results. In a pinch, cubed butternut squash would be a good alternative.
This was very good. I did it in the slow cooker and served it over couscous and it was hearty, healthy and delicious.
Really good and hearty. Loved the use of pumpkin in this
I made this recipe exactly how you said and it is amazing! Very healthy and filling. It also made the house smell great! The only thing I didn't like was having to peel the pumpkins...I don't have the best peeler so it was a pain, but definitely worth it!
