Ingredients

  • 5-6 pound whole chicken , butterflied
  • 6 carrots , peeled and cut into sticks
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes , cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 large potato , cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 large turnip , peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 medium beets , peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 large onion , peeled and quartered
  • 8 whole garlic cloves , peeled
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper , to taste
  • olive oil , to drizzle on top

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F/176C degrees. Place the butterflied chicken skin side up in large roasting pan. Place the vegetables and scatter the garlic cloves around the chicken.
    *Be sure to give each vegetable it’s own space, so they roast and don't steam.  May want to keep the beets separate, as they will make all the other veggies red.
  • Combine all the seasonings with salt and pepper in small bowl. Rub the chicken's skin with the seasoning mix, then drizzle the chicken and vegetables with olive oil.
  • Roast for 2 hours or until chicken registers 165F/73C degrees in the deepest part of the thigh. If the chicken is left whole (not butterflied), roast a little longer, about 30-45 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from the pan and let rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes before carving.

Notes

  • Can turn the oven up to 400F/204C degrees to brown the veggies, if needed
  • Store leftover chicken and vegetables in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days
