3 large onions, sliced thinly
3 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
4 large yams (about 2 pounds)
2 fryers (approx 2 1/2 lb each,) quartered
2 teaspoons salt
Lightly brown pecans in skillet. Remove. In same pan, cook onions
with butter, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the
onions are cooking, peel and slice yams into 1/2" slices. Sprinkle
chicken with salt, arrange with yams in large roasting pan. Stir
Maple syrup into onions, then spoon the mixture over the chicken.

Makes 8 servings, about 485 calories per.
Note: you can use margarine instead of butter if you wish, also I
double the onions and butter, and then cover the pan, because the
original recipe seemed a bit dry for my tastes.
