2lbschicken tenders or breasts, cut into thin strips or 1 inch cubes
Soak 16 - 20 wooden skewers in water for at least an hour to prevent burning on the grill.
Combine onion, garlic, ginger, coconut aminos (or soy sauce), sesame oil, coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar), pear, salt and pepper in a food processor, pulsing until thoroughly mixed. Pour over chicken in a marinating dish or zipper-closure bag and marinate for at least an hour, preferably longer.
Thread the chicken strips or cubes on the soaked skewers.
Pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly.
Grill chicken skewers for 4 to 5 minutes each side, turning and basting with the reserved sauce. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions. Serve with rice, rice noodles or cauliflower rice.
