Sweet Potato Oven Fries: Cut each potato into about 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick slices. Cut each slice lengthwise into about 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick strips; place in large bowl. Add oil, garlic, sage, salt and pepper; toss to coat well. Spread on large rimmed baking sheet; bake in 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in food processor or using plastic bag and rolling pin, crush melba toasts until in fine crumbs; transfer to shallow dish. Cut chicken lengthwise into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick strips; set aside.

In bowl, stir together mayonnaise, parsley, mustard, thyme, salt and pepper; add chicken and stir to coat. Add chicken to crumb mixture and turn to coat. Arrange on separate greased rimmed baking sheet.

Turn fries. Add coated chicken to oven; bake for 10 minutes. Turn chicken; bake until chicken is golden and no longer pink inside and potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
