one of my fave "herbed" chicken dishes, srm, is to take leg quarters (or breasts with skin still on, i just like leg quarters better on the grill) and separate the skin from the meat just a little. run your finger in between, making a little pocket. liberally sprinkle french provincial herbs & garlic in there, pat the skin back down, toss on grill or in oven.

srm, chicken pairs well with quite a few herbs. You could prepare chicken cacciatore, which uses a tomato sauce along with garlic and oregano and/or basil. If you Google "chicken cacciatore," you'll come up with tons of recipes. You should also search the forums here for help.

Tarragon chicken is another dish that can easily be made by browning the chicken in some olive oil, then adding some chicken broth and/or white wine, some tarragon, salt and pepper and simmering until tender.

You could also make a paste of butter minced garlic, salt, pepper and tarragon and put it under the skin of chicken pieces or a whole chicken and roast until golden and done.

Rosemary is also an herb that works well with chicken so, you see, you have many avenues to pursue. Have fun experimenting.

I usually end up using thyme, sage, and rosemary when I'm cooking chicken, in addition to the ubiquitous salt, pepper, and garlic.

For grilled whole chicken parts, I use olive oil, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Heavily applied, those spices form a nice crust on the skin.

I love Penzey's Greek seasoning with chicken - it has primarily lemon, garlic and oregano. Here's a great-sounding recipe from their site that I want to make myself

Recipes at Penzeys Spices Greek Pasta and Chicken

I've also just mixed one or two teaspoons of the seasoning with olive oil and brushed it on chicken breasts to be sauteed or grilled.
