There is an amazing spice use list that I found years ago...
I don't remember the website, but you can really just Google "complete list of spices and uses" and you'll find great information on spices... I found a general list of several different spices, the tastes when dried and when fresh, the tastes when mixed with other spices, the tastes they bring out in foods, the foods that they compliment, etc. There are even books you can purchase with this information.
With chicken, doing that pan fry method with some extra virgin olive oil works great, and you can sprinkle a dash of paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, dash of garlic and onion powder, dried coriander.. mmmm.... anything goes with chicken really.
A favourite that I tried the last time I had chicken and pan fried it with ev olive oil (although, I am leaning into vegetarianism...) was cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, cayenne pepper.
it was devine....
