Season chicken thighs with garlic powder, salt, and pepper - all to taste.
Place a medium nonstick skiller over medium heat; sear the chicken on both sides until it has reached a golden, crispy coating. Approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
While the chicken is searing, prepare the ingredients for the sauce. Whisk ingredients in a medium bowl to thoroughly incorporate.
Once the chicken has reached a crispy outer coating, remove from pan and place into the bowl with the honey garlic lime sauce. Using tongs, toss to coat each thigh.
Return each thigh to the pan, skin side down. Cover and allow to cook 2-3 minutes before flipping. Add any remaining sauce in the bowl to the tops of each flipped thigh, recover and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes.
Garnish with chives and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
