Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a deep 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. (Omit oil if leaving skin on).Advertisement
Brown chicken on both sides, about 5 minutes, working in batches, if needed. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Add onion, carrots and celery to pan. Cook over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, thyme and oregano; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Stir in tomatoes and tomato paste. Add broth; bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes.
Return chicken to pan. Cover and simmer on low heat 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside (165 degrees F internal temperature). If desired, remove chicken from pan and simmer sauce on high heat for a few minutes until slightly thickened. Serve over polenta, pasta or mashed potatoes.
