I didn't use the full amount of flour and seasonings for the portion I was preparing . It is a very nice seasoned flavor, and the gravy was delicious.

We loved this! At first we found it a bit bland but I made a few adjustments - the 3/4tsp of all the seasonings was increased to 1tsp each and we added 1tsp of each seasoning to the egg wash as well as the gravy. We also only used only enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan versus the 1/2c listed. This worked out great for frying. When it came time to make the gravy - we used 1% milk, added approximately 1/4c of butter (may need a little more depending on how you like your gravy) and the seasonings as referenced above.

I wish I was better at cooking chicken fried steak. This would be good but way too greasy. I just haven't mastered the frying part.

I've tried several different chicken fried steak recipes and this is the only one my wife will eat. It has a great flavor of seasonings!

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.

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.
