Chicken Fried Steak

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by emma1222

This recipe is a little bit of a process, however it is totally worth it. I know that most chicken fried steak has gravy, but this one is so flavorful I really don't think that it's necessary. This one can be a bit messy, but the end result is worth it as well.

Great recipe! I made it exactly as written and it was very tasty. The timing was right on and the breading actually stayed put unlike some of the others I've tried. Made for PAC 2010. Thanks emma for sharing your nice recipe.
