Paleo Roasted Chicken

Step 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse the chicken and remove any giblets or other parts stored within the cavity (butchers or grocers often place these in a plastic bag inside the chicken). Pat dry and season with sea salt and pepper; set aside on a dish. Stuff the cavity with two whole lemons and twine the legs together to close.

Step 2 Lightly coat a medium stockpot with butter over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken on all sides, paying careful attention not to burn. Remove the chicken and place on dish.

Step 3 Place the beets and potatoes in the stockpot, paying careful attention not to stack. Fill the stockpot with white wine and 1 cup of water. Place the chicken on top of the root vegetables and season with Herbes de Provence.

Step 4 Cover and cook in the oven at same temperature for approximately 35 minutes. If the liquid dissipates during cooking, add 1/2 cup water and re-cover. Remove the top and cook for additional five to 10 minutes to brown the chicken lightly. Use a poultry thermometer; when the chicken is done cooking, the internal temperature should read a minimum of 165 degrees.
