Remove tough outer layers out of lemongrass.

Finely grate bottom third of 1 stalk and put apart; discard the rest of the stalk. Trim and discard top of remaining stalk, then bruise stalk by giving it a few whacks against a cutting board (this helps release the essential oils). Tie it in a loose knot; set aside.

Pulse allowed grated lemongrass with shallot, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, garlic, and 2 Tbsp. Water at a food processor, adding a dab or two of water if needed, until a paste forms.

Heat oil in a large skillet over moderate. Season chicken with pepper and salt and cook, skin side down, until the skin is lightly browned and crispy, 8–10 minutes.

Cook spice paste in the same skillet, stirring, until very fragrant, about 5 minutes (it will begin to darken slightly as the water evaporates and the glue starts to fry in the fat left behind).

Put kaffir lime leaves (if using), cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, coconut milk, coconut oil, and reserved knotted lemongrass to skillet. Bring to a simmer, add chicken, and cook, turning pieces occasionally and scraping the bottom of skillet often, until chicken is falling-apart tender and coconut milk has broken (the fat will separate from the liquid and then start to brown the chicken along with other aromatics), about 1 1/2 hours.

Toast shredded coconut in a dry small skillet over moderate heat, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Let cool.
