This Pumpkin stew with chicken cutlets is hearty and perfect for those cold days.

With tender chicken cutlets, warm herbs and a fine Tefal pan in which you can make a lot of stew, I gave my own twist to Foodies Pumkin Stew. This will certainly get you through the coming winter months. And for the novice “stover”, read my stew tip below ;-)
“Nandita's ultimate stew tip? Use hard vegetables such as parsnips, carrots or pumpkin for your stew. These retain a bit of their bite, even after hours of stewing.”

3. After about 5 minutes, add the canned tomatoes, garlic, Arabiata Pesto and Pimenton, honey and stock to the pumpkin. Stir regularly and bring to the boil. Then add the chicken and cover the pan with a lid. Let the pumpkin and chicken simmer on low heat for 25-35 minutes. Turn regularly in between.

4. Add the chickpeas after 20-30 minutes and check if the pumpkin and chicken are cooked. Season with some extra Arabiata pesto or salt and pepper (optional).
