Cook Book #20: Atkins for Life by Robert C. Atkins, M.D.

 Cookbook #20 in my Cook the Bookshelf Challenge is Atkins for Life by Robert C. Atkins, M.D.

About the Book 

I bought this book a while back while I was in a low-carb phase.  The recipes were good then and are still delicious even though I am no longer restricting my carbohydrate intake. This book outlines the complete Atkins plan and has a lot of great recipes. 

The Recipe I Chose To Make

I made Coconut Chicken on page 266.  

How Was It? 

I was looking a for a quick, easy, and flavorful recipe and the Coconut Chicken did not disappoint!  I had Thai chili peppers on hand and used them instead of jalapenos to add a bit of heat.

What’s Next?

The next cookbook in my Cook the Bookshelf Challenge will be Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book of Breads.
