Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6.
  2. Put the garlic, chilli, cinnamon and ras el hanout in a shallow bowl and season to taste. Stir in the lemon juice and add the chicken breasts, rolling them around to coat well.
  3. Arrange the chicken breasts and courgette pieces in a roasting tin, spray with low calorie cooking spray and roast for 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the courgettes are tender.
  4. Meanwhile, put the couscous into a bowl and pour over enough boiling water to just cover. Leave for about 10 minutes or until the water is absorbed then fluff up the grains with a fork. Stir in the tomatoes, roasted courgettes and mint and divide between plates.
  5. Slice the chicken breasts and arrange the pieces alongside the couscous. This is sensational served with a spoonful of harissa paste (pick up a copy of Mediterranean Magicto find out how to make a healthy version of homemade harissa paste).
