About this recipe:An fairly easy to cook dish with a kick. Quite a healthy dish with plenty of vegetables and fairly cheap too. Just scale down the portions for fewer people. I tend to make it as described and chill the remainder for lunches.

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Pour the olive oil into an oven dish and place in the oven to warm. Chop all the vegetables and garlic and place in the oven dish with the herbs, salt and pepper and mix well. Place back in the oven for around 10-15 minutes mixing now and then.
Meanwhile chop the chicken breasts into bite size chunks and dice the bacon slices. Cook the chicken and bacon in a preheated frying pan with very little oil. Place all chilli powder over the meat while frying. Fry until cooked through.
Five minutes before everything is cooked, place the couscous in a really large pan. Cover with boiling water around 2cm (1 inch) above the couscous, cover the pan and leave.
After 5 minutes, place the cooked vegetables and cooked meat into the pan with the couscous along with any juices. Mix thoroughly, for around 4-5 minutes ensuring the couscous is thoroughly coated with any chilli oil residue.
Serve in bowls with perhaps and side salad and garlic bread.
