Ingredients

8
skinless whole chicken legs
1 tsp
ground cumin
1 tsp
salt
4 tsp
canola oil
4
red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
2
onions, sliced
4
garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 c
reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 c
chili-garlic sauce
2 Tbsp
hoisin sauce
4 Tbsp
chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 c
chopped unsalted dry-roasted cashews

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sprinkle chicken with cumin and salt. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 4 chicken legs and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer to platter. Repeat with 1 teaspoon of oil and remaining 4 chicken legs.
2
Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in Dutch oven. Add bell peppers, onions, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 8 minutes.
3
Return chicken and any accumulated juices to Dutch oven. Add broth, chili-garlic sauce, and hoisin sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender, about 35 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Stir in cilantro. Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon cashews over each serving.
