    emma1222's Note:

    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.

      The taste of this recipe is fantastic and brought back pleasant memories of the Chicken Fried Steak that my mom made when I was growing up. I did have a little trouble with my breading sticking when I turned them over to cook the second side, but it was my fault and had nothing to do with the recipe (I didn't put enough shortening in the pan). It tasted great nonetheless. Thank you for posting your recipe, emma1222. Made for Spring 2013 Pick-A-Chef.

      This is the recipe I use and it is awesome. Hint for crushing saltines: I place mine in a coffee grinder and pulse it! Works beautifully!
