WATCH: How To Make Chicken Tocino

This sweetened chicken recipe is the perfect ulam to serve with piping hot garlic rice.

 

Classic tocino flavors are replicated for a chicken version, instead of pork. This means less time is needed for tenderizing the meat. You can leave the chicken in the marinade in as little as an hour (just to let the marinade sink into the meat) or as long as overnight. Either way, a sweet, hearty breakfast is just a few minutes away.
