Found on the web to help determine the difference between chicken friend and country fried steak...
Chicken-Fried: Deep-fried, but no bacon grease is used
Country-Fried: Pan-fried, with bacon grease
Though chicken fried always comes with cream gravy, (instead of cream or brown with country-fried) as well as it being crispier, I think I'd miss it not being fried in bacon grease; it might change the flavour too much.
The dividing line is roughly at the Mississippi river, not middle TN. Country is in the east, chicken is in the west.
