Chicken Cheese Ball of Happiness

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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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!


1 can(s)
premium chunk chicken breast (or cut up some rotisserie chicken)
8 oz
package cream cheese
1/2 pkg
dry ranch dip mix
1/2 c
crumbled feta cheese (optional, but yummy)
scallions, diced small
sliced, toasted almonds
