  1. Combine lime juice, coconut milk and TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce in an extra-large Ziploc® bag. Trim excess skin from thighs, add to liquid and marinate 4 hours under refrigeration.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Set up a standard breading station. Combine eggs and water; combine shredded coconut and panko breadcrumbs. Dredge thighs in flour, then egg, then breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Heat 3 Tbsp. olive oil in a sauté pan. Working in batches, pan-sear chicken thighs in hot oil until brown on both sides; add additional oil as needed. Re-combine thighs and place in 325°F oven for 50 minutes.
