1 1/2- cups water mixed with 1 1/2 - cups milk

pepper to taste

Preparation

  • Chicken Fried Steak:
    Combine cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and ground red pepper (if using). In a second bowl or dish whisk together the milk and both eggs.
  • Dredge chicken in cracker crumb mixture; dip in milk mixture, and dredge in cracker mixture again. Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch in a 12-inch skillet. Heat oil to 360°.
  • Fry steaks in batches, about 10 minutes, adding oil as needed. Turn and fry a couple more minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove to a wire rack that has been place inside of a jellyroll pan. Place pan in the oven to keep the steaks warm at 225° oven.
  • Cream Gravy:
    Carefully drain the hot drippings, reserving cooked bits and 2 -3 tablespoons of the drippings in skillet. Add 1/3 cup flour to the skillet with the drippings.
  • Cook over medium high heat. Using a whisk mix the flour into the drippings until it starts to brown and become a paste.
  • This is called a roux. If the roux looks to oily and runny you can add another tablespoon or so of flour and mix again. Whisk constantly until the paste becomes nice and brown.
  • Slowly add the milk and water mixture whisking constantly and blending the liquid with the flour mixture until combined.
  • Let the gravy come to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer until the gravy thickens up.
  • If the mixture thickens to much add more milk as needed until the gravy is the consistency that you want.
  • This could end up being more then the required 3 cups.
  • Season generously with salt and pepper and serve over the chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes.
