Lighter Chicken Fried Steak

264 Fewer Calories
31 g Less Fat

Ingredients:
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon Paula Deen House Seasoning
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 (4-ounce) lean cubed round steaks
6 scallions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

Directions:
Whisk together the egg whites and 2 tablespoons of milk in a shallow dish or pie plate. Combine 1/2 cup of the flour and 1/2 teaspoon of House Seasoning on a sheet of wax paper. Dip the steaks, one at a time, into the egg whites, then into the flour mixture.

Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side; transfer to a platter and keep warm.

To make the gravy, add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of flour; cook 1 minute. Whisk in the broth, the remaining 2 tablespoons of milk , and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of House Seasoning and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring, until the gravy bubbles and thickens, about 2 minutes. Divide the steaks among 4 plates and serve with the gravy.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
