Add the Chicken broth and chicken back into the bowl, let simmer for 5 to 10 mins. meanwhile mix together flour and some water until thick constistency no lumps. take out chicken and shred. put it back into the pot. add the flour mixture to soup until soups appears thick, then add milk, stir. Salt and Pepper to taste. Cut each biscuit into fours and add to soup. Let simmer until biscuits are done.

I used regular broth because its what I had on hand, next time I would use low sodium. I added a light salad on the side with this too. If it gets too thick just add a little more water.
