This recipe is our KEEPER. My husband loves chicken fried steak, but he's also pretty picky about it. I've tried tons of different variations-from many different recipes-and finally last night when I made this he said, "This is some of the best!" (even out of all the restaurants that he's ordered it from). And he requested that I use this recipe from now on. I figured I'd put it here for safe keeping. It's nothing too fancy, but maybe someone else will have good luck w/this, too. Adding the baking powder and soda to the flour seems to make for extra cripsy crust. I use Paula Dean's House Seasoning, from FoodNetwork.com, to season the meat.
