A sweet and slightly tangy option for chicken and potatoes. This is a favorite in our house.

  • Sprinkle chicken tenders with steak seasoning; heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook the chicken tenders until the meat is lightly browned and no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Remove the chicken, and set aside. Stir the maple syrup into the skillet, scraping up and dissolving any browned flavor bits from the skillet. Bring to a boil, simmer for 2 minutes, and stir in the green onions.

  • To serve, place the mashed sweet potatoes onto a serving platter, top with the chicken tenders, and pour the maple sauce over the chicken.

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. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

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!!! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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!!! Read More

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! Read More
