Chicken Fried Steak with Sausage Gravy

It's recipes like this that make this blog worth it. This is very good. It might not rank up there with the pizza or mac and cheese, but it's definitely a keeper.

Rocco's recipe gets around the badness of the original chicken fried steak by baking the steak instead of frying it. You also coat the steak in whole wheat panko bread crumbs. Finally, the one last trick is using non fat greek yogurt in the gravy.

It's a dish that takes you back home to the south, even if you've never been there.

Normally, this dish comes it at around 2000 calories. Yes, that's 2 THOUSAND calories. Rocco's version is around 320. The one thing is that there is still 10 grams of fat. But, that is better then 100 grams of fat in the original.

Cool! There are too many fried chicken places in the South. Very popular and terrible on weight watchers!
