Drain hibiscus flowers, reserving syrup in a small bowl.

To make the dipping sauce: Mix ginger and hot sauce into the reserved syrup.

Trim and cut each green onion into 4 pieces. Thread each skewer as follows: 2 pieces of chicken, 1 piece of green onion, then 1 hibiscus flower*; repeat twice; then finish with 2 pieces of chicken. Lightly brush skewers with oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Preheat grill to medium-high. Cook skewers until chicken is cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Drizzle skewers with dipping sauce and serve extra on the side. *Cut one flower in half if needed; jars contain approximately 11–12 flowers.
