Default Chewy bread

What's the best way to make bread more chewy? Also what are the results of
spraying the top of the loaf with water while baking?

High Gluten flour or Bread Flour will give you a chewy texture inside, and
spraying the crust with water while it is baking will give you a crispy
crust. Too much spraying will give you a thick crunchy crust.
