Chicken Fried Chicken (or steak)

When I was a kid, if my mom asked my dad what he wanted for dinner he always gave her the same answer: Chicken Fried Steak.

My mom’s CFS recipe was amazing! I have tried different ways to get a perfect crunch and I always go back to her secret ingredient…..Club crackers! Seriously, if I am going to consume the calories of fried meat I better makes sure it is the best. Here is what you need:

1-2 sleeves of Club crackers

1/2 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

1 cup milk

Chicken breast or round steak



Heat about a cup of oil on medium-low in a deep pan on the stove.


Dump your crackers in the blender and pulse until they are a fine powder.


Mix together your crackers, flour and baking powder. (The baking powder is what makes the crust get fluffy!)


Whisk together your eggs and milk.


Dip your meat into the liquid mixture.


Roll the meat into the dry ingredients.


Do a double coat! DIp it back into the egg mix.


Coat one more time in the cracker/flour mix.


Drop your meat into your pan of oil. Cook it on medium-low heat. Don’t be tempted to turn up the heat– The outside will cook too fast and leave your meat raw in the middle.


These are perfect with some loaded mashed potatoes!
