      I love country fried steak, and this recipe was no exception. I cut the recipe in half with no problems. I did have a little trouble keeping all the breading on the meat, it wanted to fall off after the first flip.....but I managed to keep it all together. Delicious meal. Thanks for sharing! Made for Cooking Tag Mania game.

      According to my 7 year old son, he said," Your chicken fried steak is the best one I have ever had, better than the restaurants." Very good flavor, great recipe to add to my collection.

      This turned out only problem was finding a pan big enough for the gravy! I had to switch to a bigger one. You can also use sliced green onions in the dish. I thought it had a great flavor. I will make this again.
