  1. Blend 1 tablespoon lemon juice, garlic, oregano, paprika, salt, cumin, cinnamon and pepper in a medium bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  2. Mix oil and the remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  4. Thread chicken and onion pieces alternately onto 4 or 8 skewers.
