Add olive oil to nonstick pot (or use cooking spray). Add the chicken and brown over high heat for 2 minutes, turning chicken once.

Lower the heat and transfer the chicken to a plate. Set aside.

Add all remaining ingredients to the pot (except the reserved chicken pieces). Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pot, cover, and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is just about falling off the bones.
