Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. It is either an unrefined or partially refined soft sugar consisting of sugar crystals with some residual molasses content, or it is produced by the addition of molasses to refined white sugar.
Brown sugar contains from 3.5% molasses (light brown sugar)
to 6.5% molasses (dark brown sugar).
Brown sugar has a slightly lower caloric value by weight than white sugar due to the presence of water. One hundred grams of brown sugar contains 373 calories, as opposed to 396 calories in white sugar.
However, brown sugar packs more densely than white sugar due to the smaller crystal size and may have more calories when measured by volume. One tablespoon of brown sugar has 48 calories against 45 calories for white sugar.

Brilliant combination. I used skinless and boneless chicken thighs to cut down on the fat. The meat just fell apart and was packed with flavor. The slow simmering sauce was loaded with layers of flavor.
The polenta was a perfect addition. It seemed a bit thick but once plated with the sauce it loosened up and became creamy, took on the flavor of the veggies and sauce and very satisfying. Cost effective, low in fat and gosh darned tasty!
