Season the chicken by sprinkling all over with salt and pepper. Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat. Brown chicken evenly on all sides for 3 minutes, making sure not to burn them but allowing the juices of the pan to caramelize a little. Remove chicken from pan, pouring excess liquid out and set aside. Add onions and mushrooms, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until they soften. Then add bay leaf, thyme, wine, chicken; season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Bring the heat up to a gentle simmering (you want to be careful not to overcook or toughen the meat). Cover pan tightly with a lid, and simmer slowly until the meat falls off the bone, for about 45 minutes.
