Prepare the Peanut Sauce
In a small pot, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, half of rice vinegar, and remaining coconut milk. Heat on low and whisk ingredients until combined. Add Thai chilis to taste. Heat 3-4 minutes until warmed through, but do not allow to boil.

Continue cooking 4-5 minutes until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
