Boil sweet potatoes 6-7 minutes in salted water. Cool to handle while you preheat oven to 450°F. Cut potatoes into wedges, drizzle lightly with oil, season with salt and pepper. Roast 35-40 minutes to crisp and brown.
20 minutes before the fries come out of the oven, heat a skillet with about 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add chops and cook 6-7 minutes on each side. Remove to plate and cover with foil.
Add a little more oil to the skillet and reduce heat a little. Add garlic, chopped shallots or green onions and ginger. Stir 2 minutes then add soy and maple syrup. Reduce to thicken a couple of minutes more, return chops and cover with glaze.
