Bang Bang Chicken

3 chicken legs (drumstick)
3 green onion, white part
2 dried chili peppers
4 cloves garlic
2 slices ginger

2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon Chinese chili oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 red pepper, sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped green onion

Add chicken legs, green onion, chili pepper, garlic and ginger to a medium size pot. Add enough water to cover chicken leg. Put on stove at medium heat and cover pot. After bringing to a boil, turn to low heat, simmer until chicken leg is just cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Mix soy sauce, sesame oil, chili oil, sugar and salt in a small bowl.
When chicken leg has cooled down, tear the meat from the bone. Discard chicken bones and place chicken meat on a plate.

Before serving, top chicken with red pepper, cilantro and green onion. Pour sauce over chicken leg, mix well and serve warm or at room temperature.
