  2. Put the vegetables for roasting in a roasting tin. Drizzle with the olive oil, season with black pepper and turn to coat. Add the reserved lime halves to the tin.
  3. Put the chicken breasts on top of the veg and roast for 30–35 min until the chicken has cooked through and the juices run clear when pierced.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the couscous according to the pack instructions.
  5. Once the chicken and veg are cooked remove the roasting tin from the oven and put the chicken on a plate to rest.
  6. Meanwhile, steam the broccoli for 2–3 min, then refresh under cold water. Cut the chicken into 1.5 cm thick slices. Arrange the ingredients in 2 bowls, squeeze out the roasted garlic if you like and add a dollop of yogurt to each, if using. Serve sprinkled with black pepper, with the lime halves for squeezing over.
