Chicken Fried Chicken with Country Gravy

Chicken Fried Chicken with Country Gravy is a true family favorite! Crisp fried chicken smothered in a spicy, creamy gravy. Dinner never looked or tasted so good!

 

 

Forget chicken fried steak, chicken fried chicken is what’s up. It’s thinner than skin-on, bone-in fried chicken, which means the ratio of breading to meat is higher. 

 

 

 
Awhile back on the cooking channel they gave this suggestion to make homemade Chicken Fried Chicken and since this is one of my favorite meals, I was excited! It seemed simple but I hadn’t even thought about pounding out the chicken breast.
You can find a mallet in any grocery store. We pound the chicken until it’s about an inch thick (make sure you don’t pound it too much or it will start to fall apart).

  1. I can’t wait to try this. It looks so simple & delicious. Would you mind if I shared your post in a future newsletter post? (Properly credited & linked back to you, of course.) I think my readers would love your recipes.

  2. Sounds really good! Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 11, open April 1 to 26. All entries shared on social media if share buttons installed. I’d like to invite you to check out my other current link parties too!

  3. I JUST saw this recipe cause it popped up on my FB feed.THANK YOU for sharing! My hubby suffers from Gastroparesis (stomach paralysis) AND Diverticulitis, so there are quite a few things he CANNOT eat any longer. Anything high in fiber; with a skin, husk, hull, or seed, no nuts and NO BEEF. (We live in TX, so that last one is REALLY fun to explain!????) Some of his ABSOLUTE favorite foods were Pecan Pie, Corn on the Cob and Country Fried Steak! I can’t do anything about the corn, but I have found a recipe for “just the gooey” of a Pecan Pie and we’ve found a FEW restaurants that offer Chicken Fried Chicken, but until now I hadn’t found a recipe to make it myself – that didn’t sound like I’d be having to summit Mt Everest to complete it!!! My husband is going to be SOOOOO HAPPY!!!
