Chicken packet disaster

I attempted making this chicken today with disastrous results.

After 8 minutes on high, the oil in my pan was smoking so much my smoke detector went off, but the chicken was still raw in the middle. I finished it off in the oven, but I'm wondering why my timing was so off. Tasted good, though.

And I'm worried I ruined my pan... It looked the Exxon/Valdez disaster when I was done.
