1 cup pecans, chopped & toasted


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.

cook's notes

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.

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.
