(all with EV olive oil on first) Have tried:
Basil & oregano, salt & pepper
Thyme, salt & pepper
Rosemary, salt & pepper
Have some Herbs de Provence I haven’t tried yet.
Does anything with sage work?

cinnamon and ground chili pepper/powder ... no joke
chicken rub base:
* 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
* ½ tsp nutmeg
* 1 tsp chili powder
* 1 tsp coriander
* ½ tsp cardamom
* 1 tsp garlic powder
* 1 tsp kosher salt or sea salt
* 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
* 1 tsp brown sugar

add or omit items as to your preference

Sage is a great accompaniment to chicken as long as you keep it simple. You can make a simple stuffing with clarified butter, chopped sage, garlic, rosemary and thyme, salt and pepper and course bread crumbs. Also slide a few leaves of sage, butter and a few bruised cloves of garlic under the skin of the breast of the chicken.

Be cautious though, sage is overpowering!

I was going to suggest something similar to brewolf’s blend - a little sweetness and some hot spice work well on chicken.
I like Allovate’s suggestion, but I might skip the chopped sage in the stuffing and just go with the sage under the skin - fresh sage can be very strong.

I usually make a mix of herbs in the blender with some garlic and olive oil. Any herb combos will work, but as most suggest, rosemary works great. I usually put half a cup (maybe less?) of olive oil plus rosemary, thyme, and some broad leafed herb (usually cilantro [yeah, it works well]), or flat leaf parsley/basil just for substance. Add a 2 cloves of garlic and some salt and pepper with a dash of crushed red pepper or a fresh chili and you have a winner. Just cover that mother with the herb slurry, inside and out, pop it in the oven and you’re good to go. Easy and delicious. Pretty much chicken Provencal.

Tarragon, butter (or any similar product), garlic (optional), S&P. Rub under the skin of the breast and thighs. Tarragon has a slight anise flavor goes great with chicken. Put the olive oil on the outside skin to crisp it up.

I personally prefer just thighs as they are more forgiving, have more flavor, and I will Buffalo half of them and herb the other half.

2 day brine in salt and brown sugar. Then the herbs can be blended with butter and rubbed all over. Also get butter under the skin of the bird. Roast at 450 for 75 min. Throw potatoes in the pan with the bird, and you get awesome roasted potatoes. Throw carrots, garlic and onion as well and you can scoop them out and all the fat and juice and make a sauce when the bird is done.
