Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. In a medium bowl, combine the chermoula spice blend, the salt and 1/3 of the Greek yoghurt. Add the chicken breast and toss to coat. Set aside. Finely chop the garlic. Roughly chop the baby spinach leaves. Thinly slice the cucumber into half-moons. Slice the cherry tomatoes (see ingredients) in half. Slice the lemon (see ingredients) into wedges. Grate the carrot (see ingredients).
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the slivered almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
Return the pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the chicken until golden, 2-3 minutes each side. Transfer the chicken to an oven tray lined with baking paper and bake until cooked through, 8-12 minutes (depending on thickness). Set aside to rest.
TIP: Don't worry if the yoghurt chars in the pan, this just adds more flavour! Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.
While the chicken is baking, melt the butter with a drizzle of olive oil in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the carrot and cook, stirring, until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water and crumbled chicken stock (1 cube for 2 people / 2 cubes for 4 people). Bring to the boil. Add the couscous and stir to combine. Cover with a lid and remove from the heat. Set aside until the water is absorbed, 5 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine the cucumber, cherry tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Set aside. Fluff up the couscous with a fork and stir through the baby spinach. Add a generous squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste.
Slice the baked chermoula chicken. Divide the carrot couscous between plates and top with the sliced chicken and cherry tomato salad. Spoon over the remaining Greek yoghurt, garnish with the almonds and serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
