5 from 12 reviews


  • 500g Chicken Breast (or chicken thigh, if you want)
  • 1 cup Sprite Zero
  • 1/3 cup alternative sweetener, I used Lakanto Monkfruit Golden Sweetener
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/ tsp pepper
  • Red food coloring (optional)
  • Cooking oil for frying


  1. Make the Sugar Free Tocino Marinade: In a small bowl, combine Lakanto Monkfruit Golden Sweetener, salt, pepper, and sprite.
  2. Mix well until alternative sweetener is dissolved.
  3. Add a few drops of red food color, if using. This will make your chicken tocino more appetizing.
  4. Set the marinade aside ready for use later.
  5. Tenderize the Chicken Breast: Put the chicken breast is a clear plastic and use a meat tenderizer to tenderize it. Pound the meat until a bit thin and tenderized.
  6. After tenderizing all your chicken breast, cut them into strips and put it in a large bowl.
  7. Pour in the Sugar Free Tocino Marinade and mix well.
  8. Cover with Cling wrap and put it in the fridge for 2 hours or better yet overnight for full flavor.
  9. It’s ready for frying the next day.
  10. To Fry: Heat cooking oil in a non-stick pan and fry your chicken tocino for 2 minutes on each side or until cooked and a bit caramelized.
  11. Remove from heat and serve with Cauli- Sinangag (Cauliflower Garlic Fried Rice) and a dipping sauce of spicy vinegar and chopped tomatoes.
