Peel the garlic and rinse in cold water.

Peel and core the pear, then cut into small pieces.

Place garlic and pear into a blender or food processor with just enough water to liquify.

Remove most of the upper green portion of the leeks/scallions (leave about 1/2 inch of green, use remaining white portion in the chicken prep). Fine chop the leek/onion green.

Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well.

Let stand for fifteen minutes.

Chicken

Cut chicken into roughly 1 inch by one inch cubes.

Crush the garlic.

Grate the ginger.

Cut leek/onion whites into roughly 1 inch sections.

Place chicken, leeks/onions, mushrooms, and seasoning ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Let stand for about 5 minutes.

Place the seasoned chicken and vegetables on skewers in the following order; chicken, onion/leek, then mushroom. Finish the skewer with a piece of chicken.

Place skewers in the marinade and let stand five minutes.
