Where has this been all my life? I love this spread and want to hide it from everyone else in the family. Since I cannot trust myself, I only make it if company is coming. Serve with crackers.

This cheese ball recipe made the whole Kitchen Crew very happy! It's definitely not a traditional cheese ball. We loved the shredded chicken and ranch flavor in each bite. We recommend adding the feta cheese. It really adds that extra cheesy flavor. Can't wait to make this again! The Test Kitchen
