Very easy and the whole family loved it.
hit the spot. use more spices. less flour and milk mixture
This is the first time I've been able to make Chicken-Fried Steaks at home where the breading was crispy and stayed on the meat. I double breaded the meat, after letting the first breading sit for about 10 minutes, I just repeated the process.
Very tasty, and quick too!
We loved this recipe. Held together well compared to other chicken-fried steak recipes I have tried. I think it calls for more coating than you actually need, so I halve the flour, but keep everything else the same.
