Soy Simmered Chicken

1 whole chicken -- skin removed
1 tablespoon oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/4 cup sherry or apple juice
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes -- or more to taste
2 cloves garlic -- minced or pressed
1 bunch chopped cilantro
1 bunch green onions -- sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds -- to garnish

Brown chicken on all sides, in a heavy Dutch oven. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water, and set aside. Mix all other ingredients together except sesame seeds. Pour soy sauce mixture over chicken. Turn down heat and cover. Simmer for 30-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Set chicken on platter. Stir cornstarch mixture into Dutch oven and cook until sauce thickens, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in chopped fresh cilantro leaves. Pour over chicken and garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Serve with cooked rice.

You may use any chicken parts you desire, adjust the cooking time.
