In a medium mixing bowl, add turkey, five spice powder, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper and chives. Form 8 2-ounce slider-size patties, about 3 inches in diameter.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat, add vegetable oil. Add sliders and cook 3 minutes on each side. Once you turn the patties, baste with the hoisin sauce.
