Medium high heat on the stove top to get the browning. 350F in the oven to finish.

You can always boil the chicken first, then pan fry.

Why on earth would you do that?! There is no benefit to boiling chicken before browning it.

Depending on the size of meat I often finish in the oven. One thing about meat is that it will release from your pan when it is ready to turn. I hate to see people rip meat from a pan or grill. If it is burning before it releases then the temp is too high.

This is happening because your heat is too high. Try backing off the heat a bit (med-high or so) and the outside will not be done before the inside.

Another thing you can try is brining. Do a search and you will find a ton of threads about brining chicken. It is an easy technique which gives the new cook a little wiggle room and provides great results.
