1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter in 5-quart Dutch oven over medium heat; add chicken, skin-side down. Cook until chicken is golden, 7 to 8 minutes. Turn chicken over; add onion and garlic. Cook until onion is soft, about 3 minutes.
2. Add tomatoes, broth, Madeira and thyme to chicken mixture. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until chicken is tender, about 40 minutes. Remove chicken from Dutch oven; reserve.
3. Puree the cooking mixture from the chicken in a food processor or blender container. Return mixture to Dutch oven. Add chicken, shrimp and olives; cover and cook over medium heat until hot. Keep warm.
4. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in small skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are golden, about 5 minutes; reserve.
5. Pour vegetable oil into 1 1/2-quart saucepan until it reaches a level of 1/2 inch; heat over medium heat to 350°F. Break 1 egg into saucer or small custard cup; slide egg carefully into hot oil. Shape egg white into round ball by gently rolling it against side of pan using wooden spoon; cook until yolk is almost set, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn egg over; cook until yolk is set, about 1 minute longer. Remove egg from oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper toweling. Repeat to cook remaining 3 eggs.
6. Place chicken in center of large serving platter; arrange toast around chicken. Place eggs on top of every other piece of toast. Sprinkle mushrooms over chicken. Pour vegetable mixture over chicken.
