Kid snacks Carribean style

Our family has decided to take a weekend once a month to enjoy food from other countries or cultures and this month was the Carribean. They use coconut products like we use grains and so many of the recipes we found were clean. We made these for dinner but they are great for after school snacks too.

1 chicken breast cubed
1 Tbsn. almond butter (the original did ask for peanut butter)
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. dried ginger
3 Tbsn water
2 unripe bananas in large slices

Put the butter, paprika, ginger and water in a pan on low heat, just enough to melt the butter, remove and put into a bowl. Add the chicken to the bowl and mix well.
You can wrap the bowl and marinade the chicken for up to 2 hours or cook right away. We were hungry, we cooked it right away.

Put chicken peices and banana slices alternately on the skewers and coat the whole skewer with the remaining sauce in the bowl. On medium heat fry the skewers a few mintues on each side until brown.
