Perfect Roasted Chicken and Root Vegetables

Every time I make this recipe for the family or guests they absolutely go nuts for it! It is incredibly moist and delicious! I hope you enjoy it as well. The recipe was inspired by Emeril Lagasse and tweaked to perfection by me. You can use a chicken ranging in weight from 3 1/2 to 7+pounds. Double the amount of the paste ingredients if you make the larger bird. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the chicken. Use as many root vegetables as you like. They can cook along with the chicken.
