How to Make Fiery Chili Chicken Legs


  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.
