Chicken Fried Steak with Mashed Potatoes and Spinach

Submitted by Alex Lattur

About the cook: I'm an aspiring chef who is in college right now and this for one of my projects for school. I love cooking and I genuinely try and come up with original recipes to make. If I can't make one I just find multiple and tweak them and put them together. This recipe is an original and I did it for a ACF practice competition.

About the dish: This recipe is good for when you are on a budget and still want something that is fine dinning worthy.
