Ingredients

  • 8

    chicken legs, thighs attached

  • 3

    tablespoons cornstarch

  • Salt and pepper

  • 4

    tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), divided

  • 1

    bottle teriyaki sauce

  • 3

    tablespoons ginger, grated

  • 3

    cloves garlic, grated

  • 3

    tablespoons honey

  • 6

    scallions, white and green parts sliced on the bias, but kept separate

  • 2

    cups rice

  • 2

    cups water

  • 1

    tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

  • 1

    red bell pepper, cut into thin matchsticks

  • 1

    cucumber, cut into thin matchsticks

  • 1

    large carrot, cut into thin matchsticks

  • 3

    tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped

Directions

In a large bowl, dust the chicken legs with cornstarch and season with salt and pepper. Heat a medium size skillet over medium-high heat with about 1 tablespoon EVOO and brown the chicken legs. In a slow cooker, add the browned chicken legs along with the teriyaki sauce, ginger, garlic, honey and white parts of the scallions. Put the lid on and cook on low for 5 hours or high for 3 hours. When the chicken is about 20 minutes away from being done, add the rice, water, 2 tablespoons EVOO and salt to a medium size pot with a lid. Bring the pot of rice up to a boil, then drop it down to a simmer. Put the lid on and simmer for 10-15 minutes. When the rice is done, fluff with a fork and fold in the green parts of the scallions and sesame seeds. Just before serving, combine the bell pepper, cucumber, carrot, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper and about 1 tablespoon EVOO in a bowl. To serve, scoop a portion of scallion-sesame rice into the bottom of a shallow bowl and top with two chicken legs drizzled with a bit of the teriyaki sauce. Garnish with the fresh and crunchy pepper, cucumber and carrot mixture.
