I made just the chicken version of these for dinner tonight and we loved them. They were simple and delicious, thanks for posting!

I've only made the beef ones so far, but they are sooooo good I'm going to try the chicken ones when I get back from vacation. The only thing I did differently was substitute about 1/2 t oregano for the thyme. I have a large, two burner grill pan, so I toast the buns on the empty side. We ate these with fresh guacamole which put them over the top! Also, fresh pineapple on the side was a great contrast.
