1 Toss the chicken with the soy sauce in a large bowl. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.

2 Remove chicken from the soy sauce allowing excess to drip back into the bowl. Transfer the chicken, skin-side down, to a 12 inch non-stick skillet; set aside the soy sauce.

3 Place the skillet over medium-high heat and cook until the chicken skin is browned 7 to 10 minutes.

4 While the chicken is browning, whisk coconut milk, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves and pepper into the soy sauce.

5 Transfer the chicken to a plate and discard the fat in the skillet. Return the chicken to the skillet skin-side down, add the coconut milk mixture, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Flip chicken skin side up and continue to cook, uncovered, until chicken is done, about 15 minutes (175 deg F internal temp).

6 Transfer chicken to platter and tent loosely with aluminum foil.

7 Remove bay leaves and skim any fat off surface of sauce. Return skillet to medium-high heat and cook until sauce is thickened, 5 to 7 minutes.

8 Pour sauce over chicken, sprinkle with scallion and serve.


Works fine with breasts, you just don't get the yummy crispy skin.

I chop up the garlic instead of adding whole cloves and don't bother with the scallion.
