Greek Lemon Chicken with Spicy Couscous

Chicken cooked with lemon, spices and herbs in the Greek style makes an easy supper. Just put everything in a roasting pan and pop it in the oven and forget about it for 25 minutes. If you’re eating al fresco, you can even cook the chicken and vegetables over hot coals on the barbecue.
