    surprised there is sugar added to this recipe…?!

      Hi Hayley,

      Sugar is used in a lot of Malaysian/Thai cooking. This recipe is relatively true to the common recipes used for Penang chicken, hence it includes sugar. Palm sugar is most often used in this dish however, we have replaced this with brown sugar. If you prefer to leave the sugar out or use less, that is absolutely okay. 🙂
