1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. paprika

Preheat oven to 325F. Wash the bird in warm water and pat dry. Place on rack in roasting pan. Place celery, onion, and 1/2 cup wine in body cavity. Using twine, tie legs together over cavity. Tuck wings under, or skewer against sides of bird. Brush bird with 1/4 cup melted butter. Insert meat thermometer in inner thigh. Roast uncovered for 1 hour.
