  1. Put all ingredients except chicken and coconut milk in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Arrange chicken thighs in a large dish and pour marinade over top. Marinade for 4-24 hours, turning chicken over occasionally.
  2. Remove chicken from the marinade and put the marinade into a pot. Preheat grill or oven. Grill at medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes on each side under direct heat or roast in the oven at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until an internal temperature of 165 degrees is reached.
  3. Bring the marinade to a simmer and whisk in the coconut milk. Bring that to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and reduce about one-third of the way until the sauce becomes somewhat thick and creamy. Brush the sauce over the chicken while grilling or baking in the oven. Drizzle the rest of the sauce on top of the chicken when serving.
