In a shallow bowl, lightly beat the eggs with 1/3 cup water. In a separate shallow bowl, combine the flour and 1 teaspoon black pepper. Lightly season the chicken all over the salt and black pepper. Dip the chicken pieces in egg mixture, letting any excess drip off, and then coat well in the flour mixture.
In a large skillet, heat the shortening over medium-high heat until it melts and reaches 350 degrees on a deep fry thermometer; you'll want a depth of 2 inches. Add the chicken and cook until browned and crisp 13 to 14 minutes for the dark meat and 8 to 10 minutes for the white meat. And kust like that , you've got yourself the best ever Southern fried chicken.
