Rub half of remaining herb mixture under skin. Rub remaining herb mixture and 2 teaspoons oil evenly over skin. Tie ends of legs together with twine. Place chicken, breast side up, on a rack coated with cooking spray in a shallow roasting pan.

Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine potatoes, carrots, onion, and halved garlic cloves in a large bowl. Add remaining rosemary, sage, thyme, salt, pepper, and remaining oil; toss gently to coat. Add vegetables to roasting pan. Bake an additional 15 minutes. Stir vegetables. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees. Bake 40 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in chicken thigh registers 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Let stand 10 minutes. Discard skin. Serve chicken with vegetables.
