Pan Seared Honey Lime Chicken Thighs Recipe

Looking for a quick, scrumptious chicken recipe? I’ve got one for you. The other day, I laid eyes on a pack of chicken thighs that I had in the freezer. Costco sells them in sealed twin packs. I defrosted them and then pulled out my cast iron skillet to get to work.
