6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)*
3/4 cup canned coconut milk*
1 Tbsp minced fresh garlic
1 Tbsp pepper
1 Tbsp hot chile flakes

3/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp hot chile flakes

*(I use more chicken and then 1 whole can of milk)

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Mix coconut milk and spices and add chicken. Cover and marinate for 1 hour to 1 day.

Take chicken from marinade (reserve marinade). Pull thighs/breasts open and grill over hot coals or high heat on gas grill. Cook, turning meat to brown (10-12 minutes per side). Baste frequently with marinade.

I have also covered the chicken with foil and baked in 350 oven for 45-60 minutes. Not as tasty, but still good.

Transfer meat to platter and pour chile glaze over.

Chile Glaze:
Combine the rice vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and hot chile flakes. Bring to boil over high heat and cook until mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup (8-10 minutes). Use hot. Can make glaze up to 1 week ahead, refrigerate and reheat before serving.
