Chicken steak with gravy is simply out of this world. Most recipes are a made with pork or beef, and it is sometimes called country fired steak. I could never figure this out in terms of why it is call chicken steak. In light of this, I decided to do it with real boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and it turned out simply great. Combined with the delicious gravy, your dinner guests and family will love it.
In this recipe, we do not remove the tenderloins as they add more flavor and make the breast bigger, but you can do so if you wish. Be sure not to pound them out too much, or they will fry too fast and burn.
I like mushrooms in the gravy, but this is totally optional. You can add the spices of your choice as well. You can also serve the dish up with some mashed potatoes or rice.
Give them a try and let us know what you think. I’m sure you will enjoy them.
