When I think about steak, the first thing comes to mind is gravy. For me personally, I am fine with or without gravy, but husband and kids will definitely ask, “Where is the gravy?”
Yeah gravy, you make me think twice before cooking steak. First, making gravy takes time, second, I always have not enough ingredients, third, the taste does not turn out the way I want it to be.
However, with this chicken steak, the gravy is as easy as making white sauce (because it is white sauce!). I never thought that white sauce would make a perfect gravy for steak.
So as easy as making white sauce, this chicken steak recipe from Ree Drummond from Pioneer women show is simply easy yet delicious.
~ 1 1/2 cup milk
~ 2 eggs
~ 2 cups all purpose flour
~ 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast ( Cut as desired size)
~ salt and pepper
– Oil for frying
Gravy: ~ 1/3 cup all purpose flour
~ 3-4 cups milk
~ salt and pepper
Seasoned chicken with salt and pepper, set aside. Mix milk and eggs in a shallow dish. Flour in another one. Dip chicken in flour, then egg mixture then flour again. so it will be, flour – egg – flour. Until all chicken covered.
Fried the chicken in the heated oil.
I do not use deep frying method because this is one way of me saving oil and also with this I dont think we really need deep frying. Because we can turn the chicken when one side is brown enough.
For the gravy: after frying all the chicken, take out the left over oil until around two tablespoons left. Sprinkle the flour evenly. Mix the flour with the oil until turn brown. Add milk. Keep mixing until the sauce thick enough, add salt and pepper at the same time. If the sauce if not smooth enough, pour it over a strainer in a bowl. Stir with a spoon.
Serve the chicken steak with mashed potatoes and vegetables of your choice. Pour the gravy on the top. Enjoy.
