There are as many ways of making chicken fried steak as there are people who make it.
We first ate the dish in the early 1980s at the late, lamented Cactus Cafe in Greenwich Village. Later, we found a recipe from a 1983 cookbook 'The Flavors of America' published by Current. With minor variations, it's served us well ever since.
If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to post our version on the recipe thread. It's not difficult to make and all the ingredients should be readily available in Europe.
