With clean hands or wearing kitchen gloves, pound out chicken breasts to in the where abouts of 1/2" in thickness and add to buttermilk mixture (toss to coat well). Grind/crush the Ruffles® Jalapeño Popper Flavour Potato Chips. Place crushed chips in a shallow large baking dish. Pull one piece of chicken at a time out of the buttermilk and gently shake to remove some of the excess. Dip into the chips and coat thoroughly on both sides. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat 'til all chicken breasts are thoroughly coated. Cover with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for about half an hour.
Place chicken in oven on the middle rack, and place a pan of water with the 2 lemon slices, 3 sprigs fresh garden thyme, 2 sprigs fresh garden rosemary and 1 large sprig fresh garden sage submerged in the water on the rack below the middle racks pan of chicken. Bake for 25-35 minutes, 'til cooked through and coating is a nice golden-copper brown. While the chicken's baking, prepare the Jalapeño Ranch Dipping Sauce.
Jalapeño Ranch Dipping Sauce: In a medium bowl blend together 'til smooth and creamy the 1/4 cup mayo, 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream, 1/8 cup low-fat buttermilk, 1/2 cup Ranch Dressing, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper corn, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and dash of paprika. Add the 6 large fresh sweet basil leaves torn fine and bruised, 1 teaspoon fresh minced/chopped dill weed, small handful chopped fine fresh garlic chives and the 6 finely minced hot pickled jalapeno slices.

Just watch closely when baking chicken. You want the out side chicken breast coating golden and crispy and the chicken baked 'til the juices run clear, not red or pink. You'll want to make this again, and again...& again! Save the recipe!
