Preheat broiler with rack 6 inches from heat.
Coat a large foil-lined baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine the chicken and 1 tablespoon oil on prepared pan; toss to coat. Broil 13 minutes; turn chicken over, and broil 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix honey, stock, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, sambal, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; cook for 13 minutes or until thick and reduced to about 2/3 cup, stirring frequently. Brush the chicken with 3 tablespoons of the honey mixture, and return to broiler; broil for 2 minutes or until lightly charred. Place the chicken in a large bowl; drizzle with remaining honey mixture, and toss to coat. Sprinkle the chicken evenly with coriander and peanuts.
