Wearing oven mitts, cover sheet with parchment-lined foil, crimping tightly around edges; carefully return to oven. Cook until liquid is absorbed, 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool, covered, 5 minutes. Remove foil; squeeze reserved lemon over couscous and fluff with a fork. Top with feta, cilantro, and a drizzle of oil; serve.
