Poor your vegetable oil into your skillet and set it to medium-high heat.  Once the oil is very hot, place both chicken halves in the skillet skin side down.   Season the other side of the chicken with salt, pepper and thyme.

Set bricks on top of your chicken or use heavy pots making sure the chicken is pressed into the skillet.  Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.  Cook the chicken on the stove top for 15 minutes and then finish in the oven for 5 minutes.
