Soy Simmered Chicken

1 whole chicken, skin removed (sometimes I use just whole legs or thighs)
1 tbsp oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/4 cup Sherry or apple juice (I used Sherry)
1/2 tsp 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 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp water
2 tsp 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. Serves 4

Pat's notes: This is yummy! I often add the green onions and cilantro (approx 1 cup) in the beginning with the sauce instead of sprinkling after chicken is cooked. Sometimes I omit thickening with cornstarch or adding sesame seeds
