Preheat the oven to 350°F. Season chicken thighs with salt and set aside at room temp while you chop the veggies.
Mince garlic, peel and mince ginger and slice the leek.
Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high until almost smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken skin-side down and cook until the skin is golden-brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Don't worry that it isn't cooked through. We'll get there. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
Saute the garlic, ginger and leek for 2-3 minutes in the oil left in the pan. Add the green curry paste and stir. Add 1 can coconut milk and incorporate with a whisk. Bring to a simmer and stir until uniform. Turn off the heat.
Add the chicken back to the pan skin-side up in a single layer in the sauce. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until the chicken reads 165F° with a meat thermometer.
To serve: Spoon the sauce over the chicken and garnish with cilantro, red onion, and serrano or jalapeno and serve with lime wedges. Make it a full meal with cauliflower rice, shirataki noodles or desired veggies.
