  5. Make the Thai sauce. Place all sauce ingredients, except for the water, into a high speed blender. Puree on high, using the water to help thin the sauce until smooth and creamy.
  6. Turn the chicken pieces and let bake for another 3-5 minutes until crispy and golden. To serve, remove from oven, and place in a deep dish. Drizzle the pepper-garlic sauce over the pieces, tossing to coat , sprinkling with parsley if you wish. Serve warm with the Thai sauce for dipping.
