  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup finely chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons island teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white grapefruit juice or water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • Sweet chili sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add red pepper, green onions and garlic; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in chicken, teriyaki sauce, grapefruit juice, sesame oil and chili sauce. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  2. Unroll crescent dough into one long rectangle; press perforations to seal. Roll dough into a 12-in. square; cut into sixteen 3-in. squares. Place 1 tablespoon chicken mixture in center of each square. Bring edges of dough over filling, pinching seams to seal; shape into a ball.
  3. Place on ungreased baking sheets, seam side down. Brush tops with remaining olive oil; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with sweet chili sauce.
