Basil is a perfect herb to use in many chicken dishes. It has a slightly peppery mint flavour which pairs well with chicken. Used in Italian and Greek dishes, you will find that basil is used both fresh and dried. Speaking of pairs, basil goes well with mint or marjoram.
Used widely, dried oregano is related to the mint. This aromatic herb is commonly used in chicken dishes. When it comes to pairing, mint goes well along with basil. For a simple marinade, you can pair oregano with some lemon juice, crushed garlic and olive oil.

Thyme’s flavour profile is a delicate herb to add to your chicken dish. Not as aromatic as other herbs, it’s still strong enough to play with other herbs. Dried thyme is paired well with rosemary or oregano, whereas fresh thyme is great with parsley or basil.
