I have found that as much as I might like to make my own roast chicken - picking it up from the grocery store already roasted has many advantages. Everyone in the household likes some part of the roasted chicken - thank goodness! - so it's a super fast and easy weeknight dinner paired with a salad or other vegetable. I like to buy two and debone one of the chickens and freeze the meat for other dinners :: soup, salad, burritos, enchiladas, pasta etc. Again, fast and easy.
