Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Wash and dry chicken.
Place roasting rack in pan and place chicken on rack.
In a small bowl, mix together garlic, paprika, garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Consistency should be somewhere between runny and stiff.
If you want, put something in the cavity of the chicken, such as a halved orange, a halved lemon or two, a halved apple, or any combination of aromatics.
Generously rub paprika mixture all over outside of bird.
Place chicken in oven to roast.
Baste intermittently with white wine.
Roasting time should be 1 1/2 hours or so. Chicken is done when juices from the thigh run clear and you don’t see any pink flesh. Meat thermometer should read 165 degrees F.
Let chicken rest before cutting up and serving.
