Recipe by PrimQuilter

My boys love chicken fried steak any which way it comes served. We have had many an argument over what is the correct name; chicken fried or country fried. To me they are the same! I have included the gravy recipe as well, no chicken fried steak would be complete without it ! The original recipe came from a Texas cookbook, but I have changed it up a bit. Serve with a big pot of mashed potatoes and plenty of bread and butter for dipping!
