Even on "Low" my broiler is pretty hot. I leave the door cracked a tad to ease up on the temps a little. Learned this after burning toast one too many times.

Kitchenelf gave you good advice. This is exactly what I do. Roast it first so the chicken is cooked and the meat is juicy and tender, then stick under the broiler, about 6 to 8 inches from the coils to finish crisping the skin. Awesome results every time. And of course butterfly the bird first. It broils evenly on all sides.

I quarter a whole chicken and bake it on a cookie sheet at 400F until the internal temp is almor right on. Then flip on the broiler to finish the skin if necessary.

My oven is hard enough to clean without having baked on grease which I know would happen if I broiled it in my mine---not the easiest to regulate and needs so be soooooooooo replaced. But I will keep these ideas in mind when I do get that new model.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
