Sprinkle chicken with 1 tsp (5 mL) thyme, salt and pepper; heat oil in large (12"/30 cm) non-stick skillet over medium high heat.

Drain off fat; return 2 tbsp (25 mL) fat to skillet and heat over medium heat.

Stir in tomatoes, ham and bay leaves and 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) thyme; bring to boil. Return chicken to the sauce.
Cover and reduce heat to low; cook 25- 30 minutes or until chicken juices are clear. Remove chicken to baking tray or pan; cover to keep warm.
