I found this recipe on AOL's Kitchen Assistant. I have heard that it is one of the best chicken fried steak recipes out there! The gravy looks a little scary when you are making it...but it turns out GREAT! I usually serve with mash potatoes and peas!

This is the best chicken fried steak I have ever tried!! It has just a little kick on it...and makes plenty of gravy to serve over those mash potatoes! I would recommend this recipe to anyone who loves some some Southern cuisine!
