1 can chunk chicken -- (5 oz) drained
1 Ranch-Style salad dressing mix -- (0.4 oz)
2 pkgs. cream cheese -- (8 oz) softened
1 cup pecans -- chopped & toasted


I made this for Thanksgiving and it was very good...however when I make it again I would use half the amount of cream cheese.

Combine chicken, salad dressing mix and cream cheese in a mixing bowl, beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Shape into a bowl and roll in pecans. Cover and chill.

I make this same chicken-cheese ball
all the time, the only difference is i use one 10 ounces of can of chicken with 2 cream cheese and 2 tbs. of mayo. I split it and make 2 chicken balls. if i want a smaller one I use 5oz can and 1 cream cheese, 1/2 envelope of ranch dressing mix, and 1 tbs mayo. I then roll it in the pecan. Everyone loves it.
