Everything sounds like it will mesh well, except for the oregano and rosemary. I would omit them. Otherwise, it sounds great!

Agree. Save the herbs for something else. As it is there are a lot of flavors going on but I'm thinking you are more interested in the health benefits at this point than any 'nuanced' flavor profile.

With the ingredients listed, I might add a pinch of Chinese 5-spice powder and a bit of soy sauce.

But that is optional. And I agree about leaving out the oregano and rosemary. They're great with chicken, but not so much with the ginger.
