Directions

1. Rub chicken pieces with cumin, coriander and oregano. Heat oil in a medium-sized pan and add squashed, whole garlic cloves to season the oil. When sizzling add chicken and brown well on all sides. Set aside. 2. In a soup pot sauté bacon, red onion, celery, garlic and ground cumin over a medium heat. Once onion is soft and translucent, add wine, turn up heat and cook off the alcohol. Add stock and water; reduce heat to a gentle simmer. 3. Add pumpkin and juniper berries. Add chicken pieces and simmer uncovered for around 20 minutes – until pumpkin is tender and chicken cooked through. 4. Season to taste, add lime zest and juice. Pour into serving bowls, removing any juniper berries, and top each with a handful of halved cherry tomatoes, finely diced spring onions, finely sliced chilli pieces, chopped fresh coriander and (optional) a dollop of sour cream.
