From The Paleo Diet Cookbook, this meal is not for the chicken-hearted. A balanced way to fuel up the tank for the next day’s long, grueling workout sessions, it’s packed with all the Paleo ingredients you’ll need for a great training session.

Grueler Chicken

serves 4


2 roasted, trussed chicken breasts (see Chapter 8 for recipe)

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 large baked yams, cut in half lengthwise
