Sticky Coconut Chicken

Tonight I made this chicken for dinner. I thought it turned out really well. I was only able to marinate it for 3 hours, next time, I'm going to try and marinate it longer, maybe even all day. Below is what I did when I cooked it due to preference and ingredients on hand. You can click on the link below to get the original recipe. Enjoy!

adapted from My Kitchen Cafe

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 can canned coconut milk
1/2 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 tsp. red pepper flakes

Marinate chicken in coconut milk, ginger, pepper and red pepper flakes at least one hour (It is better to let it marinate four about four to five hours). Grill on barbecue.

3/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. red pepper flakes

While the chicken is grilling, bring above ingredients to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until mixture is reduced and thickened, about 8-10 minutes. Be patient because it takes a little while. But once it starts getting really thick, immediately take it off the heat! Glaze both sides of chicken the last few minutes of grilling and serve chicken over rice.

That looks delicious! Thanks for all the great ideas! I made the sugar cookies last week and they turned out perfectly. They've stayed really soft as well. Will definitely use it again!
