Ripped from one of my cookbooks. The skin is left on the chicken for keeping the flesh moist during cooking -it says don't eat it. I will use low-sodium soy, low-sodium fish sauce, Splenda for the sugar, and low-fat coconut milk when I make this. I like to cook chicken on the bone for an hour at 350 so since I haven't made it yet, make sure juices run clear.
