Prep the chicken by cutting it into one-inch pieces. Place raw chicken pieces and oil in a large bowl with a cover or a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
In a small bowl, combine the oregano, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt. Mix the seasoning until combined.
Add the lime juice and seasoning into the bowl or bag over the chicken. Place the chicken in the marinade in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
When ready to grill, thread the chicken, bell peppers and onions onto kabob sticks, alternating between chicken and vegetables. Leave around two inches of stick exposed to hold the kabobs. A little extra oil can be brushed lightly on the vegetables if desired to keep them more tender.
Place the kabobs on a hot grill and cook over indirect/medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Flip the kabobs halfway through the cook time. Chicken is done once cooked all the way through with no pink on the inside and the inside of the chicken measures 165 degrees with a meat thermometer. Serve and enjoy!
These kabobs can also be baked in the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 25-30 minutes on a lightly oiled pan. Chicken should be completely cooked through with no pink in the middle, and should register at least 165 degrees insider when measured with a meat thermometer.If using bamboo kabob sticks soaking them ahead of time can help to keep them from burning. Place bamboo kabob sticks in a container with water and soak for at least 15-30 minutes while the chicken is marinating. It is ok to soak them for up to an hour while the chicken marinades.
