Lemon-Oregano Chicken Skewers

This recipe was spot on when it came to the delicious citrus flavor. I baked the chicken and then placed them on the skewers, but the original recipe calls for grilling. That is the recipe I will write up for you now :)
Lemon-Oregano Chicken Skewers
1 1/2 lemons
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil (plus extra for grill)
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
8 chicken tenderloins (about 1 1/4 lb)
8 wooden skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes)
Squeeze the juice from the half-lemon into a ziptop food bag. Squeeze garlic through a press into bag (or chop). Add oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to mix and coat. Marinate 15 minutes.
Brush outdoor grill or grill pan with oil; heat. Cut lemon into 8 wedges. Thread one chicken tender onto each skewer, then skewer on a lemon wedge.
Grill 4 minutes, turning once, until chicken is lightly charred and cooked through.
(If you wish to do it indoors, I cut the chicken into strips after washing. Bake them in the oven in a casserole dish and then place on the skewer along with a lemon wedge on top. Serve. Be sure to squeeze the lemon onto the chicken before eating...yummy!)
