The way we do roast chicken at home is in yogurt, salt and red chillies. You can add other spices if you like, but this works really well.
Use enough yogurt to liberally cover the chicken. And then steam the chicken (one can use a pressure cooker if you're good with it or put it in the broiler - whatever works for you)
Once it's mostly cooked, put it in the oven at a high heat (a little drizzling of oil to get a nice red tinge) and voila.
It's pretty juicy and spicy. My favourite combination.
For the left over yogurt and spice in the pan, put it in a saucepan with a little water and reduce it down. It makes a good gravy that coats the chicken with extra flavour as it cools.
