Add the marinade to a large re-sealable plastic bag along with the chicken fillets. Seal and shake to coat well. Let sit for at least 30 minutes in room temperature before grilling the chicken.

Turn and continue cooking until it is fully cooked. Remove and place it on a platter. Slice if you like. Cover with a foil and let rest.
  3. Meanwhile, place lemon halves on the preheated grill and cook for a few minutes until slightly charred.
  4. Serve chicken with grilled lemon on the top. Garnish with oregano sprigs and serve warm for best flavors.
