Roast

Place chicken on rack in large roasting pan. Roast 15 minutes at 425°F, then reduce heat to 350°F. Baste chicken with pan juices, then add potatoes, carrots and onions to pan. Continue roasting chicken, basting every 20 minutes, until juices run clear, legs move easily when wiggled and meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 170°F. This will take about 2 1/2 to 3 hours for a 5- to 7-pound PERDUE® OVEN STUFFER® Whole Roaster.

Transfer chicken and vegetables to platter and let rest 10 minutes while you make gravy. Pour fat and juices from pan into small bowl or fat separator. Place pan directly on burner over medium-high heat. Whisk about 2 tablespoons of fat back into pan. Add flour and whisk about 2 minutes. Whisk in chicken stock, white wine and any juices from roast chicken. Bring to boil, scraping any browned bits from bottom of pan. Cook until gravy has thickened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
