Take frying pan. Heat it for a minute and then add a big tablespoon of oil. Once the oil starts to heat up, slowly place the chicken breast halves in the oil pan. Keep it like that for about two minutes or wait until the side turns brown. The moment they turn brown, take them out. Do not turn off the flame. Add another tablespoon of oil in the same pan and then throw in the remaining chicken pieces. Do the same with them. Once they are done, take them out from the pan.
