This chicken tagine with potatoes, pumpkin and chickpeas is very hearty and very tasty. I often prepare it during the winter when it is cold outside. Everyone in the family loves it! Serve with couscous.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for the marinade, add chicken pieces, mix well and set aside for 2 hours.
In a large casserole, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces (set the marinade aside) and cook until brown. Season with salt and pepper. Add the passata, marinade and 250ml of water, cook for 15 minutes over medium heat.
Add the potatoes, onions and pumpkin (and 1 tablespoon of water if there isn't enough liquid), and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.
Stir in the chickpeas and cook for 15 more minutes.
Arrange the chicken on a serving dish, arrange vegetables around the chicken and top with the sauce.
