Remove chicken from broth; cool chicken just until cool enough to handle about 10 minutes.  Remove chicken from bones and skin; cut up chicken.    Return chicken to stockpot.  At this point add additional water, about 2 - 4 cups.  Heat to boiling.  Add crushed noodles and cream of chicken soup.  Break each biscuit into 4 pieces and drop into boiling broth.  Reduce heat.  Simmer uncovered until noodles and dumplings are done, about 7 - 10 minutes.  Stir frequently. As soup simmers it will begin to thicken.  Add water, if necessary to obtain desired thickness.  Don't forget to add love.
