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.
