In a large bowl [3], dust the chicken legs with cornstarch and season with salt and pepper. Heat a medium size skillet [4] over medium-high heat with about 1 tablespoon EVOO [2] and brown the chicken legs.

In a slow cooker, add the browned chicken legs along with the teriyaki sauce, ginger, garlic, honey and white parts of the scallions. Put the lid on and cook on low for 5 hours or high for 3 hours. When the chicken is about 20 minutes away from being done, add the rice, water, 2 tablespoons EVOO and salt to a medium size pot with a lid.

Bring the pot of rice up to a boil, then drop it down to a simmer. Put the lid on and simmer for 10-15 minutes. When the rice is done, fluff with a fork and fold in the green parts of the scallions and sesame seeds. Just before serving, combine the bell pepper, cucumber, carrot, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper and about 1 tablespoon EVOO in a bowl [3].

To serve, scoop a portion of scallion-sesame rice into the bottom of a shallow bowl [3] and top with two chicken legs drizzled with a bit of the teriyaki sauce. Garnish with the fresh and crunchy pepper, cucumber and carrot mixture.
