This recipe has some good things going on. The sauce with the maple syrup and onion was really good. However we felt the sweet potatoes with the sauce was a little flat. So I mixed some mashed butter and brown sugar in the potatoes to fix them. Ofcourse then you have something like candied sweet potatoes. Oh well that made them good for us anyway.

We LOVED it!!! I doubled it so we would have leftovers, and also added a couple tablespoons of butter when mashing the sweet potatoes. It doesn't specify as to use real Maple Syrup or not, but that's what I used. Thanks for sharing!!!
This was amazing! When I was putting it together, I thought, "What am I doing?! All these different ingredients?" I'm not a fan of pan frying, so I put the oil on the bottom of a casserole dish, put the chicken tenders on that, poured the maple syrup on top, and sprinkled the onions on top of that. I baked at 375 until the chicken was done. Then I removed the chicken, served it on the potatoes, and drizzled the sauce over it.
This dish was fantastic! I made it for my girlfriend, and she almost fell out of her chair! Actually, it was I that almost fell. I could not believe at how tasty it was, and decently healthy!!
We really liked this. I must admit that I changed the recipe a decent amount to personal taste. I am not overly fond of Montreal Steak Seasoning, so I was looking for a replacement in the spice aisle and came across a mesquite maple seasoning by the same company and used that instead. I added a little garlic powder and a pinch of red pepper. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and added about 2 tablespoons each of butter and brown sugar to my sweet potatoes, which I cooked in salted water. The glaze was excellent and all the flavors came together so perfectly. I think next time, I will use caramelized vidalia onion bits in place of the green onion and add a sprinkle of parsley for the color aspect and see how that turns out. Thanks for sharing!
Don't know HOW this can have so many rave reviews. For the price of pure maple syrup well, I's save it for PANCAKES! I mean it was edible but REALLY..it was no wheres near a response such as awesome,fantastic, delicious, a staple, or any of the above! SORRY! Just was not imressed with flavors at all.
Super tasty! Who'da thunk all this would go so well together? Went looking for a recipe for sweet potato chips; searched by ingredients (sweet potato, oil) and saw this. Just so happened I had everything in the house, down to the ingredients to make my own Montreal Steak Seasoning. Made this as directed (though I did salt the potato water, and added a pat of butter when mashing) and it's definitely a keeper. Thanks very much for sharing, Barbie!!!
Delicious! At the end, I added the chicken to the pan with the sauce, then poured over potatoes. Used a little less green onion and real maple syrup that I bought at Costco. Kids loved it too!
This was fabulous! The maple syrup on the sweet potatoes forms a nice chewy texture to them once it cools a bit on the potatoes. Yum!
I couldn't believe how yummy the maple syrup glaze was with the chicken. Who would've thought! For the sweet potatoes, I added butter, milk and a little maple syrup for a slightly sweeter taste and it was a perfect dinner! No complaints from my 3 & 4 year old either! Will be making this again soon!
This was fabulous! My husband is new to sweet potatoes and he thought they were great as well. Didn't have green onions, so I sauteed an equal amount of white onion for a couple of minutes before I added the maple syrup. We will make this again!
Loved this. Expected to hate it (I'm not a maple fan), but I loved it -- and so did my picky 10 year-old. I made as directed, with these exceptions: (1) I didn't have green onions, so I used white onions and simmered them in the oil with the chicken. The carmelized onion was delicious. And, (2) I didn't have the Montreal Steak Seasoning, so I made my own (Google "Montreal Steak Seasoning recipe" for some excellent recipes!). A hearty, flavorful family dinner. Thanks for posting!!!
I really like the maple glaze, and I'd never thought of putting chicken tenders on sweet potatoes. Thanks for sharing this great idea.
I will definitely make this again! For as simple as it was it was so tasty. The spice of the Montreal seasoning held up well against the maple syrup and the sweet potatoes. I was afraid leaving the sweet potatoes unbuttered and unseasoned might be dull but it was just right when the sauce and spices on the chicken mixed. Made a nice spring salad mix on the side and enjoyed a great meal. I'm not a naturally gifted? cook so I truly appreciate meals that have big taste payoffs for little time investment. This will be gracing our dinner table again soon.
This is sooo good! I used sweet potato fries because I had them on hand and the sauce was a great dip for them. I also used a sweet onion instead of the green onion and it turned out fantastic!
Delicious! This is going in the rotation!
I have nothing bad to say about this recipe, except that I ate way too much of it! My potatoes only needed to cook for about 15 minutes, so just keep an eye on them.
I've made this many times and it's always a hit with hubby and kids. Don't worry about using expensive maple syrup, I didn't realize until this last time that I didn't have real maple syrup on hand and used the kids Mrs Butterworth's and it worked just as well. Also, the ONLY thing I changed was the onions. I sliced up an onion and carmelized it in the syrup. REALLY tastes enhances this dish!
This was good, but not fabulous as other reviewers have said. I probably will not make it again, even after following several suggestions...it was average. I'd rather try other recipes. Sorry Barbie. :(
Oh so good! Didn't change a thing. Who knew maple syrup could be used for something other than pancakes! Thanks for the recipe.
Everyone enjoyed this and the maple syrup sauce was like candy :P
Want to add my kudos! My picky daughter and husband get excited when they see this dish on the table. I have been following several reviewers' suggestions by sautéing half a yellow onion chopped on the oil when the chicken is done and then adding the maple syrup. The flavors of the onions and syrup are heavenly together. The Montreal steak seasoning on chicken was unexpectedly delightful. And this cooks up quickly...what a bonus! Thank you, Barbie!
I loved this and will definitely make it again. The maple glaze tastes delicious over the sweet potatoes, and the steak spice adds a nice zing to the sweetness. I would suggest using more than the 2 Tsp of steak spice suggested.
Pretty good and decently healthly. Next time though I may try adding some butter and brown sugar to the sweet potatoes to kick it up a notch.
So easy to make and guaranteed to wow people. Loved it.
Was so easy to make!!!! My kids and hubby loved it!!!!
Wow this is delicious! I added a little butter to the sweet potatoes but that's all they need. The syrup makes them plenty sweet. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and left out the onions because I didn't have any.
Husband LOVED this! Only thing i did different was I didn't have chicken tenderloins so i cut chicken breasts into strips. Perfect combo of sweet and savory. went great with mashed sweet potatoes.
I made the recipe exactly as written, and it was delicious! My 3 year old gobbled it up!
Yum!! Super easy recipe! I did add a pat of butter and a splash of milk before mashing the sweet potatoes! I will be making this again!
You don't get simpler than this, and with such a sweet/savory blend of flavors. Has quickly become a favorite in our house, we even choose it for special occasions.
Easy and superb! I didn't have green onions so I used finely sliced red onions instead. Served with minted "mushy peas" was delish!
Wow! The man is STILL falling over food drunk! This one gets the A+++ in our house...
Simple to make with chicken tenderloins. Pretty, served with green peas. Probably won't make again, just no thrilled.
Delicious! However, I thought the potatoes could have used a little bit of salt.
Phenomenal meal! Very quick and easy! I used 1 1/2 lbs of chicken tenders-next time I will use more. There was not much leftover!
WOW... this was wonderful! I used a Peppercorn Herb seasoning which was great.
This recipe is great! I used Honey Aleppo Pepper seasoning, since I didn't have any steake mixes. I doubled it and used not only tenders but also cut chicken breast to the similar size, fried the meat in two batches in a stainless still skillet (Important detail! It helped to have nice browning of meat). I didn't have green onions on hand so I sauteed regular onions in the low hit in the same killet for about 10 min, then added maple syrup, boiled it a bit and added chicken back to the skillet to dress with the souse and warm it up again. The souse came up beautifuly brown and thick, it tasted outstanding. With sweet potatos, I added a tablespoon of brown sugar and two tablespoon of butter. It was great combination of flavours, my whole family loved it. My husband ate all the leftovers before I could hide it in the refregirator! It will be my go-to recipe for an easy, no fail family pleaser. Planning to make it again for a dinner party this weekend! Thank you for the recipe!
I nixed the steak seasoning and seasoned the chicken with a smal amount of salt. Instead of green onions I used white onions and cooked those in the pan (in the oil) prior to adding the chicken
Oh my goodness! This has become my favorite chicken dish, ever! I have made this twice now. It is a huge hit. It has become a staple in my house. I will continue to make on a regular basis. Thank you for sharing.
Awesome! Thanks for the recipe.
Loved this one. Didn't have the onions on hand, but it worked great witout them. Highly recommend trying this one.
Great, simple recipe. Will make this again! Doesn't need any changes.
Made this for my family, and made it again for my friend's family. So simple, and Absolutely LOVE it! Will make it again and again!!
This is so simple and good. However, it needs about twice the amount of sweet potatoes for 4 servings.
I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe as did my husband. Instead of vegetable oil, I used 2 tablespoons of butter. When I removed the chicken I threw in some thin slices of apple and the green onions and let those cook down a bit before putting in the maple syrup. The apples were a spectacular addition to the glaze. I also added a bit of butter, milk, and brown sugar to the potatoes. I would absolutely make this again!
Soooooooo good! Must be tried! Pair it with cornbread
This recipe is fabulous! I have made it for several special dinners and it has been loved by all
So I was skeptical about this because of the 2 bad reviews. But I was so pleased with this recipe that I signed up with the website JUST TO LEAVE THIS REVIEW! Everything was fantastic and I can't wait for the hubby to come home so I can warm up a plate for him! Just for perspective: I used real maple syrup because that's all I had in my fridge and it caramelized nicely with the onions. Next time I will try fake maple syrup to see if it's really worth the precious stuff! I also used yellow onions because that's what I had (and the picture does not look like green onions to me). This means I took the advice below to throw the onions in the pan with a dash of olive oil a few mins before the syrup. All in all, perfect!
This recipe was just ok. The chicken didn't have enough flavor with just the Montreal steak seasoning. The maple glaze didn't really capture the green onion flavor like I thought it would. Maybe they needed to be sauteed first then add the syrup. I also added butter, cinnamon and nutmeg to the potatoes. Don't think I'll make again.
this was absolutely wonderful. Both My husband and I loved this and will make it again over and over. Thank you for the recipie
This was just awesome- I definately plan on making it again. The steak seasoning and green onions cut the sweetness of the maple syrup so it isn't overpowering. My husband and two year old son both asked for seconds!
Very tasty and easy to make. I followed the recipe except I used red onion instead of green.
I used red onion and butter flavored pancake syrup. I cooked them together with an added can of dark red kidney beans and increased the syrup to 3/4 cup. It was awesomely good!
This was great and SO easy. I didn't have enough onion and could see why they were necessary b/c it was a smidge too sweet w/o enough, so I still gave it 5 stars because that was my error and I could see how the onion would have perfectly balanced it. UPDATE: made it again tonight with a few changes: I added some cinnamon with the montreal steak seasoning and also put all the herbs & cinnamon with the olive oil and heated it first to spice the oil. Put the chicken in the warm oil, then coated both sides with the cinnamon and montreal steak sauce. Once almost done, added a little butter to the pan to brown it. When I added the maple syrup, I STILL didn't hve onions, so I added dehydrated ones, but think you need the real ones for the fluid, maybe with chicken broth too? SOMETHING b/c it caramelizes which in and of itself is delicious, but hard to chew once it cools :). I also added a few mustard seeds and a gloppy heaping teaspoon of honey mustard. The mustard REALLY helps cut the sweetness of the maple. STILL awesome.
This is the easiest dinner that I have ever prepared and it is delicious! How's that for a recommendation? Instead of chicken "tenders" (whatever that is), I used chicken thighs and seasoned them with lemon pepper and herbes de provence. Avoid the temptation to doctor up the maple syrup sauce. Perfect. Try it!
It was quite yummy. I added some garlic and while the photo actually shows red onions (and I'm sure that would be an excellent combination) the green onions gave it just the right flavoring.
Super easy and delicious! This is going to be a go-to recipe for me.
I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. It was really good. I don't know if I bought low sodium steak seasoning but salt was the one thing that I did have to add--but I did that at the table so no big deal!
I was skeptical about this at first. Onions and maple syrup didn't seem like a logical combination, but it was so good! I followed the recipe exactly, and I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for the recipe!
No changes and I will definitely make it again
I thought the sweet potatoes were a little bland, so I added a little butter and cinnamon.
Yummy! The sweet/salty combo was perfect! Easy meal with fairly standard ingredients (I used chicken seasoning instead of steak seasoning and it turned out great). I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing!
Really love this recipe. Instead of fresh sweet potatoes, I used a can of yams and it was wonderful.
I haven't made this, that's why the 3 stars. My question is what recipe does the picture represent? Where do the red onions in the pic come in? They actually would be my preference over green onions.
Hubby found this recipe, so I happily let him make it -- and it's the best thing he makes, honest! :-) Surprisingly nice blend of flavors between the sweetness of the maple syrup (don't use pancake syrup!), the green onions and the spice (steak seasoning). Hubby reports that this is quick and easy to make.
This was amazingly simple and just as yummy! I loved it and so did the rest of the family and my friends!
Excellent! So easy and delicious. I added grated parmesan to the steak spice for coating the chicken, and deglazed the pan with a little chicken stock before adding the maple syrup. Then I served it on roasted squash and baby spinach. I will definitely make this again.
Very yummy and a big family hit! I didn't have sweet potatoes so I used brown rice. I also only had pancake syrup and it worked out great! Thanks for the new family favorite!!
No changes hubby and i loved it
This was an awesome tasting dish. I will definitely make it again. We get so tired of eating chicken, but this was a different way to prepare it!
I did change some things about this recipe based on what I had on hand. Sorry, to all the recipe purists! I seasoned the chicken with Mrs. Dash and used Vidalia onions sautéed in the pan after I took the chicken out. Then I poured the generic (non)-maple syrup into the skillet to continue as the recipe instructs. I served this with wilted spinach and dinner rolls. I loved the pairing of the slightly bitter spinach with the sweet sauce and the potatoes. If I made it again, I would probably use center cut pork chops as the chicken was too mild of a flavor to stand out from the sauce and potatoes.
Love this simple recipe! I used garnet sweet poatoes.I think this would be awesome w/waffles!
Delicious! Next time I'll double the chicken, since my children asked "Is there more chicken?" I created my own Montreal Spice Mix from a recipe found on the internet. Will definitely make again.
This is really good. It is not necessary to use genuine maple syrup; you can use Mrs. Butterworth's or some other brand of pancake syrup. I also caramelized a yellow onion instead of using green onions, and it was great. I agree with some of the other reviews and think it is a good idea to add a little brown sugar and butter to the sweet potatoes.
I love simple tasty dishes and this fills the bill. The onions in the picture look red not green. Either way, Tasty!
I used beniimo potatoes (blue /purple Japanese sweet potatoes) and served it all on a bed of fresh spinach. I'm in love with this dinner! So easy and tasty.
I have not made this yet but will soon. The main reason for writing this I would like to thank Morble for the review. My wife and I could not stop laughing. Hey, we thought of trying it with burger.
Easy and delicious! I used a smoked maple seasoning, sliced red onions and roasted sweet potatoes.
I made this as a sheet-pan dinner. Put the sweet potatoes in a bowl, cut the chicken in bite-size pieces and add to bowl, add some sliced onion, drizzle with the oil and sprinkle on the seasoning. Mix well and spread on an oven-safe sheet pan. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Increase heat to 400F, drizzle chicken and vegetables with maple syrup, and bake another 5 - 10 minutes until syrup is reduced and slightly sticky. Easy and yummy!
This was a pretty yummy meal! I did add butter and brown sugar to the potatoes, just because I like it that way. I added pats of butter on top of the chicken towards the end of the sauteing, and cut the syrup to 1/4 cup. I pan fried some onions and shallots to top it off, that made all the difference! I would definitely recommend this dish, and I will make it again! Thanks
I added butter to mash the sweet potatoes. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. Our family enjoyed this dish. I will make it again :)
I definitely will make it again, it is so good. I did make it with skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken tenders.
Delicious! Added some red onions and mixed the chicken into the pan to get a full coating of sauce before serving.
This recipe did well for a recent Paleo diet. It was tasty in the fact that the chicken was moist & the sauce & sweet potatoes paired well together.
OMG!!! This was really good! I question myself at the end of cooking the chicken before putting the maple syrup in the fry pan as a lot of the bits on the bottom of the pan looked like to were really over cooked...but did it anyway...and OMG the Flavor was A+...Will definitely do this on again!
I can never leave a recipe alone. That being said, I did not change anything about this one. It was Awesome! The whole thing is perfect the way it is. I made extra to bring for lunches and served it with steamed broccoli
Added butter, sage, salt and pepper to the potatoes. Will have these a lot more.
I prefer chicken thighs. This was the ONLY change; followed same steps. Turned out delicious!!
We loved it. Big hit with my boyfriend. Will definitely be making this again
This is a great combo of flavors! I sautéed two onions with the chicken, then added the maple syrup (I used fake-o maple syrup and it was great) and simmered. I used a cracked pepper/garlic/red wine marinade/seasoning. Yum!
Delicious chicken dinner with a nice root side. Of course a lot of the flavor is from the half cup of maple syrup, but its worth it. I did the same as others in their pictures and sauteed some red onion in a separate pan with some of the syrup sauce. The onion adds a nice savory tartness to an already amazing dish.
I used skinless thighs but me and my boyfriend loved it!! Never considered making such combination
The BF liked this quite a bit. I baked the potato instead, so during that time I marinated the cut up boneless, skinless chicken thighs (he likes those better than breasts) in the steak seasoning. Mashed the potato with a bit of butter. After I browned the chicken and removed them from the pan (I was another that used red onion vs the green) I caramelized the red onion...I only had a sugar-free syrup but suppose that's okay. I did use the chopped green onion on top and that really made for a pretty dish.
One of my favorite meals! Hits the spot and my pregnancy cravings. Made a much smaller portion for myself and ended up wanting more. It is delicious.
I found this with the ingredient search. Simple to make and just enough taste without being too sweet. Had my doubts on the Montreal Style Seasoning, but the sauce wouldn't have worked without it. I did use sugar free (read: fake) maple syrup and it was fine. I use a lot of frozen chicken tenders and eat sweet potatoes 2-3 days a week, so it was a winner for me.
My family LOVED this recipe. Sweet and savory goodness!
