Negima usually uses the white parts of the scallion, but I prefer the green, too.

You can puree the bacon with paprika and use it as a marinade for the chicken. The fat and salt keep it tender, and it picks up a nice smokiness as it cooks.

If you like Japanese grilling, check out Tadashi Ono's "The Japanese Grill". There are many good books on robata and izakaya, but Ono's is the most accessible and consistent.
