My husband made this for a family outing and it was a big hit. Quick and easy to make and it tastes so good. We put cubed ham in and 1/2 the amount of chicken. Great for a summer potlock and great leftovers too!

you can also add some additional cubed cheese choices such as cheddar and even sliced and drained water chestnuts for crunch!
