grilled chicken thighs

This delightful combination of spicy and sweet will definitely please your palette. It's got a little kick to it, but the coconut milk helps to mellow out the chili paste. You might want to double the recipe so you'll left-overs for the next day (we like them served cold for lunch). A side of jasmine rice goes very nicely. 

4 servings
1-3" piece fresh ginger
5 garlic cloves
¾ cup coconut milk
¼ cup hot chili paste
¼ cup fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. light brown sugar
1 Tbsp. kosher salt
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, plus more for grill
2 lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs
½ cup cilantro leaves 
Lime wedges for serving
