  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the harissa and chicken in a bowl, and season. Toss well to coat the chicken. Transfer to a baking tray, spooning any leftover harissa over from the bowl, and roast for 15-20 mins until golden, sticky and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, put the couscous in a heatproof bowl. Pour over 400ml boiling water, cover, and leave to absorb for 10 mins until fluffy. Cook the peas in a pan of boiling water for 3 mins until tender. Drain.
  3. Fluff the couscous with a fork to separate the grains, then stir in the lemon juice. Add the drained peas, the cucumber, herbs, olives and onion, and toss everything together well. Thickly slice the chicken breasts and pile on top of the couscous. Crumble over the cheese and top with the remaining herbs.
