Dinner can be cheap and cheerful with this flavoursome family recipe.

2 limes
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/3 cup olive oil
4 (440g) chicken thigh fillets, trimmed, halved
3 vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into thin wedges
2 Lebanese cucumbers, halved lengthways, sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh coriander leaves
4 flour tortillas
Olive oil cooking spray
2 teaspoons Mexican chilli powder
Lime wedges, to serve

Finely grate rind from 1 lime. Reserve rind. Juice limes. Combine garlic, 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1/4 cup oil in a shallow ceramic dish. Add chicken. Turn to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Combine tomatoes, cucumber, onion and coriander in a bowl. Drizzle with remaining oil and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Toss to combine.

Heat a barbecue plate or chargrill on medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes each side or until cooked through.

Spray each side of tortillas with oil. Sprinkle with chilli powder. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until brown and crisp. Cut into wedges. Sprinkle chicken with reserved lime rind. Serve chicken with lime wedges, salad and tortilla wedges.

Super saver: Use 3 tomatoes instead of vine-ripened and save around $1.62 in total.
