  Here are several techniques that help to add flavor to roast chicken.
  Before roasting, lift the skin of the breast and leg sections by
  sliding your fingers under it, then seasoning the meat underneath.
  This accomplishes several things.  First. it puts the flavorings
  directly on the meat where they will do the most good.  Second, for
  diners who remove the skin before eating, this ensures that the
  seasoning will not be stripped away with the skin.  Finally, it gives
  easily scorched ingredients, such as fresh herbs or minced garlic,
  protection from the drying heat of the oven. In addition to
  seasonings, rub a bit of oil under and over the skin. This helps to
  flavor and moisten the meat, and insures that the skin will crisp
  well during roasting.
  Start roasting chickens breast-side down in a hot oven (at least
  400F). This crisps the back and gives the thickest part of the thighs
  a head start in cooking. Then after 30 minutes or so, reduce the oven
  temperature, turn the chicken over, and stuff, baste or sauce it, the
  continue roasting until done. The roasting times may seem a bit long
  by recent cookbook standards.
  Of course. doneness is a personal choice, but I don't want to ever
  carve into a chicken with a rosy pink breast and jiggling thighs.  I
  prefer chickens roasted to between 170F and 175F. At this
  temperature, the breast may be a bit dry (white meat begins to lose
  moisture after 165F), but the dark meat will be cooked through.
