Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Finely slice the spring onion. Slice the zucchini into half-moons. Dice the red capsicum. Roughly chop the parsley leaves.
In a medium bowl, combine the chermoula spice blend and 1/2 of the Greek yoghurt. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, add the free-range chicken breast and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the slivered almonds and toast, stirring, for 3-4 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside. Return the pan to the heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the spring onion, zucchini and red capsicum and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until softened.
Add the risoni and stir to coat. Add the water (check ingredients list for the amount) and crumble in the vegetable stock cube. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15-17 minutes, or until the risoni is 'al-dente' and all the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and stir through the slivered almonds, salt (use suggested amount) and 1/2 of the parsley. Season with a pinch of pepper.
While the risoni is cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. Transfer the chicken to the oven tray lined with baking paper and cook in the oven for 14 minutes, or until cooked through. TIP: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink inside. Remove from the oven, allow to rest for a few minutes and cut into 1 cm thick slices.
While the chicken is cooking, zest the lemon and slice into wedges. In a medium bowl, add the remaining Greek yoghurt and the remaining parsley. Season to taste with a pinch of salt and **pepper*, add a pinch of the lemon zest and squeeze in the juice from 1/2 the lemon wedges. TIP:** Add as much or as little lemon juice as you like depending on your taste preference.
Divide the herbed almond risoni between plates and top with the chermoula chicken. Dollop over the lemon-parsley yoghurt and serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
