Heat enough oil in a frying pan over medium heat for pan frying. Once hot, pan-fry each chicken breast until they turn light golden brown on both sides. (No need to completely cook chicken through as it will be baked again.) Set aside on a rack over paper towels and repeat with remaining chicken breasts until the chicken is golden brown in color. Set aside.
