  2. On a large sheet of greaseproof paper, toss the chicken with salt, pepper, the oregano, allspice and finely grated lemon zest
  3. Fold over the paper, then bash and flatten the chicken to 1.5cm thick with a  rolling pin. Put into  the frying pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, turning after 3 or 4 minutes,  until  golden  and cooked through
  4. Remove the stalk and seeds from the peppers and chilli, then pulse in the processor with the trimmed spring onions and the dill until finely chopped. Scatter over a large tray or platter.

Move  the cooked chicken to a board, slice it up, then lay it around the couscous. Crumble over the feta and  serve with the tzatziki.
