Sticky Thai-inspired Chicken Thighs

When we lived in Texas, I had a lot of friends who would ask me to make meals for their families for dinner. Eventually, this turned into a full-time job. I would have families requesting weekly meals from me. I would cook or start the meal to the point where I could put it in oven proof packaging, label it with cooking instructions and then they would come and pick it up after getting off of work. All that they had to do was preheat their ovens, put it in there and maybe wind down from a long day of work with a glass of wine, while waiting for dinner to be ready. One of my friends favorite request was Sticky Thai-inspired Chicken Thighs. I like to use my large Lodge cast iron to sear the chicken thighs and to make the sauce.
