How to Make Betty Lou's Lazy Chicken and Dumplings
- 1Put the chicken pieces in a large pan. Add water until the water is 2 to 3 inches above the chicken. Add the spices and the onion. Turn burner to medium high heat until water begins to boil. Turn heat down to medium and cook until chicken is tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Remove the chicken, cool, and debone.
Put the chicken back into the pot of broth.
Open the cans of biscuits and pinch any size pieces you like of each biscuit. Bring the broth and chicken to a medium boil and drop the pieces of biscuits into the broth. Place a lid on the pot and turn the heat down to a simmer and continue cooking 30 minutes until biscuits are cooked.
