Sticky Coconut Chicken

My cooking tends to go through themes and lately I've had this thing for coconut ANYTHING! I think it all started when I made this Thai Coconut Rice that I absolutely fell in love with, to go with my mom's Honey Curry Chicken. It's divine! Then, I saw this sticky coconut chicken from Amber @ This Mommy Cooks and I knew I wanted to try it. I love how moist this chicken is and the glaze makes it yummy and sticky. My husband doesn't usually say too much about the food I make, even though he eats it without complaint, but he said he really liked this chicken. This is so easy and quick to prepare; I'll be adding this to my menu more often.

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup 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 (You could probably get away with marinating it overnight). 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. Once it starts getting really thick, immediately take it off the heat. Glaze both sides of chicken the last few minutes of grilling.
