Bring a stock pot of water to the boil
Place the chicken, half of the pumpkin/squash and the pimento berries in the stock pot with water.
Leave the pot to boil for 30 minutes (place a lid halfway over the pot) until the chicken is cooked and squash/pumpkin is tender. The pumpkin should have broken down and change the colour of the water. If it hasn't use a fork to mash the pumpkin/smash.
Skim off any excess form that develops on the top of the boiling water.
Make your dumpling by placing the flour and pink salt in a medium sized bowl, add a little water at a time (you may not need all of the water so use your own judgement).
Mix the flour and water into a dough ball.
Grab a small (golf ball size) amount of the dough and roll into the palm of your hands to create "spinners".
Carefully lower each of the spinners into the boiling pot of soup
Add the rest of the pumpkin/squash, scallion, cho cho, potatoes, carrots, thyme, homemade cock soup mix and scotch bonnet.
Once all of the ingredients have been added reduce the heat to medium, cover and simmer for 45 minutes until the soup thickens up.
