Cooking a chicken. Help!

Hi guys,
I'm trying pretty hard to be a frugal but tasty chef in the new year and to start out, I am convincing myself to cook a whole chicken, which I"ve never done before. I'd like to have to purchase as few ingredients as possible outside of the chicken. I have a whole bunch of tangerines that I'm not really enjoying enough to eat in a timely manner so I was thinking of peeling them and shoving them inside the chicken and maybe putting some slices on top and doing a kind of citrusy thing. What else do you think my chicken will need? Should there be more liquid? What spices? What techniques? I know Julia Child recommends a butter massage- which I am so looking forward to. Anything you could suggest for a tasty roast chicken would be great. Thanks!
