Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, thinly slice the onion and add to the heated olive oil along with the sugar, heat on medium to low heat until the onions are soft and brown, stirring to make sure the onions don't burn, keep flames a little lower to make sure they don't burn. Once they are soft and brown, remove from pan and place in a a bowl cover with foil to keep warm.
  2. Sprinkle both side of the chicken breast with Emeril's Essence, place the chicken in the same pan, if you need more oil add some. Saute until brown and cooked through.
