Step 1

For the marinade, mix together onion, scallion, thyme, salt, sugar, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, hot pepper, black pepper, soy sauce, oil and vinegar. These ingredients can also be combined in a food processor.

For the Cucumber Dipping sauce: Peel and seed cucumbers and roughly chop. Add sour cream and mayonnaise. Add rest of ingredients and puree in a blender. (Yields about 1 1/2 quarts)

Preheat the fryer. Skewer 2 1/2 ounces of chicken onto each skewer. Place the skewers in a shallow baking dish and cover with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

Place the skewers onto a hot grill and grill until done, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place the Yucca fries in the fryer and fry the fries until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt.

Place 3 of skewers on the left side of the plate. Place green tai leaf on the other end of the plate and top with a wedge of fresh pineapple. Place 6 ounces of cooked yucca fries in the middle of the plate. Place 3 ounces of Cucumber Dipping Sauce in a soufflé cup next to the skewers and serve.
