    xtine's Note:

    A treat you can indulge in a few times a year. Just don't tell your cardiologist. Please note - THIS IS NOT A CHICKEN RECIPE! The "chicken" in the title refers to the preparation of the steak, as in you fry it as you would fry fried chicken. NOTE: I think that the recipezaar calorie listing of this at 2360 calories per serving is more than a little bit off!!! I think they are counting the 3 and1/2 cups of peanut oil in the calorie tally, which is not accurate. When you fry foods quickly at a very high temperature, they do not absorb a lot of grease, and when you are done frying, you pour off and throw away all but 2 tablespoons of the oil which then goes to make the gravy. Also, this recipe makes A LOT of gravy - 4 cups. Most people will not eat a cup of gravy each, I just like to have some left over for the next day to put on other stuff. Anyhoo - I'm in no way saying this is a health food dish ;) but there's no way it's 2360 calories per serving either :)

      I made this recipe on 2/11/10 for mine and SO's dinner.And since it was just the two of us, the recipe was adjusted accordingly.In my lifetime I've eaten several Chicken Fried Steak recipes and I have to say that this ranks pretty high on the list.I believe the reason it taste so well, is the addition of the red pepper aand frying them in peanut oil. This will be made again. Thank you for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      WOW! Fantastic...even better than my original recipe...I used steak pieces that were for stirfrying which I got on the reduced rack. Well what a great idea...Each little piece had the "crust" and although not an everyday meal, it was definitely a special treat. I did add a little curry powder but that's our preference. Thanks for sharing your recipe and it's in my
