  1. You have my mouth watering… I’m not a big fan of chicken burgers but I think with the right seasoning I could easily devour one (ok maybe two or three) of these!

  2. Great combo of two of my favorite things.. Asian food and burgers. I’m looking forward to making my own variation of this recipe.. of course with added Sriracha.
