Let's Make It
Mix buttermilk, dressing, onions, lemon zest, juice and chile powder until blended. Pour over chicken in shallow dish; turn to evenly coat chicken with buttermilk mixture. Refrigerate 4 hours to marinate, turning chicken after 2 hours.
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Whisk eggs and water in shallow dish. Combine cheese, cornmeal, bread crumbs and oregano in separate shallow dish. Dip chicken, 1 piece at a time, in egg mixture, then cheese mixture, turning to evenly coat each piece with each ingredient. Place on prepared baking sheet; drizzle with butter.
Bake 1-1/4 hours or until chicken is done (165°F).
