Guest Post: Holly from Life as a Lofthouse

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be here on Larks Country Heart!  I want to say a big Thank you to Lark for asking me to be here today  : )   I am Holly from Life as a Lofthouse! My food blog is filled with lots of simple yet delicious recipes! I hope you'll stop by to check it out and see if there's something that catches your eye!  : )
 
                                                
 
   I am a busy mother of 3 kiddos. They are my whole world and keep me very busy! I am so lucky to be married to my soulmate. We have a great life together! I also work in a medical office for Ear Nose and Throat Doctors. Our practice is very busy and we see all kinds of sick people. Unfortunatley, we do see a lot of cancer patients. It really makes me very thankful for my health when I see these patients everyday.
 
   I think that is one of the reasons why Lark is such an inspiration to me. She is a gal that is all about 'Paying it Forward' and helping others in needs. Her help for charities and running marathons for cancer awareness truly makes me look up to her. I am so happy to be her friend!
 
   I decided to share a delicious and healthy recipe with you all today. This one would be perfect for your next Summer barbecue or get together! 
 
 
SWEET BBQ CHICKEN KABOBS
Recipe By: The Sisters Cafe


  • 1 pound (3-4) boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup Barbecue Sauce
  • 6 Tablespoons Frozen Orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 cups fresh Pineapple chunks, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 each, Red, Green, Yellow Bell peppers, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 8-10 wooden skewers

Directions:  Start by placing your wooden skewers into a large dish/ bowl of water to soak in while getting other ingredients ready. ( They can start on fire if you grill them dry! ) 
 Heat grill to medium-high heat. Mix together the barbecue sauce and orange juice concentrate in a small bowl. Set aside.
Thread chicken alternately with the pineapple and peppers onto wooden skewers.
Brush the Kabobs with the barbecue sauce mixture. Place kabobs on grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning throughout cooking process. Brush kabobs with all the remaining barbecue sauce mixture while kabobs are grilling. ( Makes about 8-10 Kabobs)
 
 
 
Thanks again to Lark for letting me share this recipe with you all! And if you get a chance come on over to Life as a Lofthouse and say Hello!
