Virgin olive oil (which has one of the lowest smoke points) starts smoking around 190°C, so if you use other oils (avocado, sunflower), strictly nothing would happen at 210°C. 210°C is a perfectly standard temperature for cooking. If you want your chicken to cook to 75°C (the safe temperature), your pan has to be much hotter than that otherwise it will take hours for your chicken to heat up.
