- Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs and legs in a single layer, skin side down, and cook until browned on that side (5 minutes). Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Discard oil in pan, leaving any browned bits on the bottom.
- Add chiles, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and 1 1/2 cups water to pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened (5 minutes).
- Return chicken, skin side up, to pan. Cover and simmer until no longer pink (15 minutes). Transfer to a serving dish, cover with foil, and keep warm in a 200 degree F oven. Meanwhile, simmer the sauce until it is reduced and coats the back of a spoon (25 minutes).
- Remove chiles and discard. Spoon sauce over chicken and garnish with cilantro.
