Combine Aleppo Pepper Hot Sauce, soy sauce/tamari, garlic cloves, Coarse Black Malabar Pepper, California Bay Leaves, and whole Black Lampong Peppercorns (if using). Add mixture to a non-aluminum pan and place chicken thighs in liquid. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Cook on low, covered, for 20 min. Turn chicken over, then cover and simmer for an additional 10 min. or until thighs are cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove thighs from liquid and place skin side-up on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil chicken for 3 to 5 min. or until the skin is golden brown. Meanwhile, bring liquid in pan to a boil over high heat. Cook, uncovered, until sauce is reduced and slightly thickened. Remove bay leaves and add chicken back in sauce to coat before serving.
