In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pheasant and brown on all sides. Transfer pheasant to roasting pan and pour cream over. Add onion, garlic and thyme. Bake covered for two hours. The bird is done when juices run clear from pierced thigh. Arrange on platter, pouring any remaining pan juices over and serve to four.
