This was really good! I love chicken fried steak, but it doesn't go very well with a low-fat diet. It came out very tender. The breading got soggy and mushy while simmering in the bullion. That's the only reason it didn't get a 5. (I did use onion powder and garlic powder instead of pepper. Personal preference.)
