Notes about this recipe

    I normally adhere to "whatever Diana instructs, I will obey", but I think next time around I will reduce down the amount of olive oil in the pesto as it made it a very thin sauce, almost like a thick flavoured oil, rather than a pesto per se. I'd also be more careful about draining the chicken from the marinade as the pumpkin ended up a bit soggy on the base. Otherwise, this was a hit at ours.

    This was ok but I'm unlikely to repeat - the flavour combination wasn't quite right for me.

    I substituted basil for coriander in the pesto. This resulted in a pesto that's much lighter than the normal basil parmesan version. Very delicious with the chicken.
