Default OTA while rooted

Whats the easiest way to get an ota update while rooted? Would it be just flashing to stock recovery again, taking the ota, and then rerooting?

If this is the case, does anyone have a stock 4.4.2 recovery .zip that I can flash?

easiest way is just flashing a stock rooted rom via your recovery. but if you want an ota, you can have root, but your system has to be completely stock. and you will lose root and your custom recovery. youd have to reflash your recovery and su to reroot.
