What is the Best Pan for Frying Chicken?

Q: I want to make something American for a friend coming back from living abroad, and so I decided to make his favorite food: fried chicken. My main question is the pan. Most recipes recommend cast iron for the even distribution, but I don't have one of those. Can I get away with using something else?

Editor: Sure! Enamel or stainless steel pans are fine for deep-frying. Just avoid non-stick pans.

Readers, what pan do you use for deep-frying? Any other chicken-frying for Shawn?

Next question?
