Garlic Chicken Souvlaki

OK we are on the Greek thing ever since we went to the Greek fest and thought we would try our hand at making our own souvlaki. We used chicken thighs and they did not do well on the skewers, I may have cut the pieces to small. Will try with chicken breast next time and there will be a next time as this was finger licking good. The recipe says you can also use a pork tenderloin.
Oh we also thought at the last minute to throw in some shrimp in the marinade and cook them.
We did not have any wild rice which is what we would have liked to use but only had white rice at the time. Time to make a run into town for some supplies.

2lbs of chicken
10 garlic cloves crushed (sounds like a lot but it is not)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 tablespoons oregano
salt and pepper to taste

Combine everything and blend well
place in plastic bag with chicken and marinate overnight.
soak skewers or use metal
cook on grill until done.
