Anna Jean this is called Chicken fried steak because it is a steak (cubed steak) that is fried in the same manner as southern fried chicken.Some people call it country fried steak or "countryfied" steak.

Why do they call this recipe "chicken steak"? I didn' t see anything to with "chickens" in the recipe unless I missed something.

I made this for my family I made some very minor adjustments. I lightly seasoned the meat with salt and pepper before dredging. I allays believe in layers of flavor. I also added my homemade hot sauce to the gravy and not the egg wash. Just a mater of preference. I highly recommend this recipe. It went well with steamed sauteed collard greens and mozzarella garlic mashed potatoes!

Great receipe, but as with all gravy the flour needs to cook a little in the skillet to brown some before you add milk and seasonings.

Season your steak BEFORE dredging - very important - when making the gravy cook gently over low heat with bacon and a small amount of bacon grease until it begins to slightly brown. Add coarsly ground black pepper and a smidgin of salt with thinly sliced green onions (I love Jalopeno peppers and add a little finely minced at this point). This will give the gravy a distinctively rich taste. Yeah, I know, bacon grease is bad for you, etc. but the small amount used will give a rich flavor and the amount used will make no significant detriment to your health. Just try it once and do not use it every day and you can enjoy a gourmet meal without clogging up your arteries.
