Place the feta in a small baking dish. Liberally sprinkle the chillies over the feta. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle over oregano. Place in the oven with the grill on, but on the middle rack. Cook until the feta is heated through and soft, about 10 minutes.
When making this under the grill, check halfway through to ensure the chillies aren't burning. If they're turning too dark, loosely cover the baking dish with aluminium foil. Don't, however, cover from the start or cover completely, as the feta's water won't evaporate.
On the barbecue...
This is just as simple to prepare on the barbecue. Sprinkle the chillies on all sides on the block of feta and wrap with aluminium foil, making a parcel. Pierce the foil so that the water from the feta can escape, and place on the cooking grate over hot coals for at least 10 minutes.
