    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups stock to a boil. Add the carrots and cook for 2 mins. Remove from the heat, stir in the couscous, butter and cinnamon, cover and allow to stand for 10 mins.
    2. Meanwhile, season the chicken. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan and sear the chicken, turning, for 10 mins. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the cumin, coriander and cayenne to the pan and fry for 2 mins. Add the tomatoes and spring onions and sauté for 2 mins.
    3. Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir in 1 tbsp oil. Place in an ovenproof serving dish along with the tomatoes and spring onions. Pour 1/2 cup stock over the couscous mixture. Slice the chicken and arrange in the dish. Sprinkle with the feta. Bake for 10-15 mins, until golden brown.
    4. Stir the mint into the yogurt and serve with the baked chicken.
