Great fried chicken! I did the salt and ice water thing, patted dry, added a bit more seasoning to the flour, sprinkled salt, cracked pepper, and paprika on chicken before dredging in flour, let it sit on wax paper 10 minutes, then re-floured just before frying. CAST IRON SKILLET! No egg wash necessary, and recipe does NOT call for it. Do cover the skillet, and oil MUST be hot enough. Used medium high flame. Fried 10 minutes on each side, turning only once, so 20 minutes total. Juicy, flavorful, not greasy -- just like my momma used to make!
