    1. 1
      Wash chicken. Pat dry and season lightly with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Heat 2 tbsp oil over medium high heat. Add chicken skin side down. Cook for 6-8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Carefully flip chicken in pan, using tongs. (I find that a rolling motion, as opposed to a pulling or pushing, helps to get the chicken up without pulling off the skin.) Reduce heat to medium low. Add chicken broth. Cover pan and cook 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove chicken from pan. Pour off broth into a bowl or saucepan for use in gravy. Carefully wipe out pan with paper towels.
    5. 5
      Add remaining tbsp of oil in pan. Place chicken pieces back in pan skin side down. Cook another 5 minutes.
