My Easy but delish Chicken tortilla soup

1 4-5 lb. whole chicken
2 cloves of garlic
1 8 oz can of tomatoes , green chilies and onions
or you can use canned tomatoes Mexican style
2 tsp salt
1 bunch of Cilantro (chop half)
2 chicken bullion cubes
1 bag tortilla chips
1 pkg. sliced provolone cheese
4 limes

Cover Chicken with water in pot , Bring Chicken to a boil in pot add salt and garlic and simmer for about 2 hours
remove the Chicken from pot and de-bone
then add the de-boned chicken back to the pot and add bullion , garlic , tomatoes,half the chopped up Cilantro and salt to taste continue simmering for about 20 minutes
pour into bowls and garnish with cilantro , chips and provolone cheese ( I use the whole slice in each bowl)
cut the limes in wedges and serve with each bowl add as much as you like to your soup.Crunch up tortilla chips and sprinkle on top of soup bowl

You can also use your left over turkey , just use 16 oz Chicken broth
