Chicken is seared in an a frying pan then cooked in maple syrup. The meat is then set atop a bed of mashed kumara for a sweet and savoury dish.
Kumara is known in Australia as a sweet potato.
Well, I didn't have any chicken so I used hamburger, and I didn't have any sweet potatoes so I used turnips, and I didn't have maple syrup so I used molasses, but I still feel I am justified in reviewing this recipe....no, no, none of the above is true, it's just that some of the reviews on this site can be so annoying sometimes. Anyways, this recipe actually is lovely! Fast, easy, and it tastes great! 5 stars. - 17 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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!!! - 15 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 27 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
