Ingredients:  
4 lbs chicken pieces
1 tsp of Old Bay seasoning

Directions:
Place the chicken pieces in a colander and rinse them under cold running water. Allow the chicken to drain but do not dry it. In a small bowl, combine the seasonings, garlic powder, garlic pepper, and salt. Lay the chicken pieces on wax paper and sprinkle half the seasoning mixture over them. Combine the floor and the remaining half of the seasoning mixture in a brown bag. Add the
chicken and shake to coat it well. Fill a cast-iron skillet half full of oil. Heat on high. To test if it's hot enough, sprinkle a few drops of water into the oil.; if it sizzles, the oil has reached the proper temperature. Gently place chicken in the hot oil, reduce the heat to medium, cover and cook for approximately 10 minutes. Uncover
and turn the chicken to cook on the other side. Continue turning the chicken pieces until browned on all sides. Pierce the chicken parts with fork. If the juices run clear, the chicken is done. If the juices are pink, continue frying until the juices are clear. When the chicken is browned and fully done, remove from skillet and drain on a brown paper bag covered with paper towels.

Note: Never cover fried chicken with foil, plastic wrap or waxed paper. Always cover with a cloth towel to keep the chicken crisp.
