Heat a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Spray the pan, add the chicken and cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove chicken and drain any juice.
Spray pan, add celery, onion, carrot and thyme. Cook until vegetables are tender and lightly browned.
