"Has anyone tried these with chicken?"

"These are delicious, moist, and flavorful. I like to use hoisin sauce instead of ketchup as a topping."

"I love this recipe. I have made it three times in the last ten days. I prefer topping it with hoisin sauce (and also dipping it in hoisin sauce). However, my boyfriend prefers it with ketchup. We both enjoy this burger very much. It's easy to make and very flavorful. I love the taste of the ginger in the burger."

"This is the third time making this family loves it. I would not changed anything; however, I agree that serving it with hoisin sauce is the best."
