In a huge bowl, combine all ingredients except for chicken and oil. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Have a taste if you like, to add more seasoning, if needed. Set aside.
Wash and pat dry chicken. Submerge chicken in marinate and cure in the fridge overnight or up to 2 days. Longer than 2 days, store it in the freezer. After marinating for a few hours move the chicken on top to the bottom of bowl.
Pan-fry Chicken Tocino
On a huge skillet over medium heat, add chicken and 1 ½ cups marinate. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes or until liquid evaporates and caramelize.
Once it caramelizes, add oil and reduce heat to low. Brown each side for about 5 minutes or char or crisp the exterior depending on your preference.
Remove from skillet. Enjoy!
