Chicken Fried Steak

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by mailbelle

I've been making this for so long that I can't remember where I got the original recipe from. The crushed saltine crackers help make the coating extra crispy.

This is a great recipe. I found the prep work easy and quick. The onIy thing that took any time was the actual frying. I used italian bread crumbs because I didn't have any saltines and it came out great. I also used paper plates instead of more dishes. I barely had any clean up! My husband enjoyed this meal as well and this is saying a lot!
