If you love good, old-fashioned, down home chicken and dumplings, this is the real thing! Note that this dumpling recipe makes "a bunch of dumplin's" because around here, most folks want more dumplin's than chicken. (prep time includes cooling time for cooked chicken.)
Cucumber-melon is the current trend in bathing accessories, and now in food as well. This is a yummy, summery treat as an appetizer, light lunch with a nice sandwich or salad, or as part of a multi-course meal (or even as a dessert soup).

You can add extra lime juice for tang, and honey for extra sweetness. If your watermelon is good and sweet, omit the honey. For a pretty presentation, garnish with watermelon balls and fresh mint sprigs.
These are so yummy! Even if a bit messy to make. You can also shape the pretzels into letters or numbers. Kids love to do that. You can also brush with butter after you take the out of the oven and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over them. My Kids love them that way.
I tried different sauces but didn't find the taste I was looking for so I threw some stuff together and I was very happy with the results. If you try it and tweak it, let me know. I edited the recipe after reading the great suggestions.
A friend of mine recently served this at her dinner party, and said "it couldn't be easier", and I said "it couldn't be more delicious" and all other guests agreed. It disappeared in minutes!!! It is a delicious and quick appetizer, or could also be the "bread" accompaniment to any main course, either way, your family and friends will "gobble" it up!! And, it is easy and fun for kids to make and enjoy too!!
