The Best Of All Chickens

Today, a chicken was killed. And now, it is sitting in my fridge. Given that this is probably the highest-quality chicken I've ever had the chance to eat, how should I prepare it?

I have two goals that I'd like to meet, when it comes to cooking this chicken:
Goal 1: make it as tasty and as wonderful as possible.
Goal 2: make it so I can really appreciate the difference in quality between this and regular, store-bought chickens.
How can I best go about meeting these two goals as much as possible? I know to wait a few days, but after that, I'm not sure. I'm most curious about whether or not I should brine it -- I've heard that one should always brine poultry, but I don't want to mask or destroy it's natural flavor.
