"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Put 1 mug of couscous and 2 mugs of boiling water into a bowl with a small pinch of salt and cover On a large sheet of greaseproof paper, toss the chicken with salt, pepper, the oregano, allspice and finely grated lemon zest 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

Using a box grater, coarsely grate the cucumber Sprinkle it with a small pinch of salt, then squeeze and scrunch with clean hands to get rid of the excess salty water Pop in a bowl with the yoghurt, juice of a lemon and a pinch of pepper, finely chop and add the top leafy half of the mint, then mix together 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

Add the peas to the veg (if using frozen peas, blanch them in boiling water for a couple of minutes first), destone and tear over the olives, then squeeze over the juice of the zested lemon and add the extra virgin olive oil Fluff up and scatter over the couscous, toss well and season to taste 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
