I spent 40 dollars and purchased a cast iron skillet just for this recipe and I think it only made the dish even better. Using the skillet for everything now. worth every penny. This was amazing. People look at me and say ” I don’t eat thighs”. You will if you try this.

I absolutely love this recipe! I’ve made it 3 or 4 times in the last month. And now I keep the ingredients on hand to make this at any time. I plan to keep it in my regular rotation.
