1/2 cup finely diced green onions

Heat oil in a sauté pan. Add ground chicken and sauté until chicken is no longer pink. Add ginger, mustard, salt, red pepper flakes and chili powder and sauté for 2 minutes. Add chili sauce, cranberry sauce and water to chicken mixture. Mix well. Simmer until chicken is cooked through. Add onions to chicken mixture, remove pan from heat and set aside to cool.

Remove one sheet of phyllo dough from beneath waxed paper. Keep remaining phyllo dough covered. Cut sheet into 2-inch strips. Baste strip with melted butter using pastry brush. Add a heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture onto one end of strip and fold corner of phyllo up over filling in triangle pattern. Continue folding in triangle pattern along the strip. Place filled triangle on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining filling and phyllo.
