To make the marinade add the olive oil, oregano, cumin, garlic and cumin to a big bowl, dice the chicken and coat.

Chop the peppers and onions into chunks.  Put the chicken and the vegetables onto the skewer, mix them together for a nice effect. Put skewers in the fridge for a few hours if you have time.
