3 tablespoons vegetable oil

    Cover the chicken with the marinade and leave in the refrigerator for about six hours
    In a large sauté pan heat the oil until very hot.
    Place the chicken with the marinade that sticks to it in the pan and fry for about 15 minutes, until chicken is well done and marinade is reduce to a caramelized coating on the chicken.
