4 Stars, SO easy & SO tasty! I added a little more maple syrup at the end. Hubby doesn't like sweet potatoes so I served w/rick cooked in a can of chicken broth & the combo was delicious.

Loved, loved.  Everyone loved it!  I made three big sweet potatoes instead.  This is a keeper!

My wife & I both loved this. She made her own mashed sweet potatoes for it. This will be added into our regular rotation!

I loved this recipe!! Made it once and even with it's simplicity, have been dying to make it again ever since. The first time I substituted the packaged sweet mash for homemade and plan on doing so in the future. I cooked them just as you would traditional homemade mashed potatoes except I went easy on the salt so as to not overpower the sweetness of the potatoes and added some maple syrup to compliment the flavor of the glaze that tops the dish off = )

Super simple and delicious! I substituted homemade sweet mash instead, and added a bit more maple syrup to the end result. I like my chicken a little over-glazed. Overall - I would make again and again! I even have leftovers for tomorrow. Very happy!
