I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to Atlanta three years ago. Apart from the people, it’s the food that I miss so much! Whenever I get homesick, I cook something Filipino to cheer me up and it always works. 😉
Tocino is a Pinoy breakfast staple most popularly made with pork but since my husband and I are trying to eat healthier after the holidays, I decided to make the chicken version this time. Enjoy!
- 1 pound chicken breast tenders sliced into bite-sized pieces
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/8 cup banana ketchup
- a few dashes of soy sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- Mix all ingredients together and cure overnight.
- Fry desired pieces or freeze until needed.
