Preheat the oven to broil.
Brush the chicken all over with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil for 10 minutes; flip the pieces and broil until cooked a little less than medium well, another 10 minutes.
When ready to finish the chicken, prepare a grill for high heat.
Grill the chicken until the skin is crispy and has a good char, no more than 5 minutes per side (the center of the breasts should register 165 degrees F).
