STEP 1: 
Rub
Rub chicken thighs with 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic powder, oregano, half the salt and half the black pepper. Heat lightly greased grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Grill chicken thighs 7 to 8 minutes per side. Chicken is done when it feels firm to touch and meat thermometer inserted in center reaches 170°F. Remove from heat, let rest 2 to 3 minutes, and shred.
