Cut the head and remove the throat tube, cut off the paws. Rinse the carcass again. Put the chicken on a cutting Board with the back down, cut the carcass lengthwise, in the middle of the breast, expand it and remove the backbone (it does not dispose of, use for making broth).
Preheat the oven to a temperature of 200 degrees. Evenly sprinkle on the surface of the baking sheet of pounds of rock salt. The prepared chicken pepper to taste and place on top of salt down the skin. The chicken do not add salt – it will absorb the required amount of salt from the pan.

For cooking in an oven is chicken that is no older than six months. The meat of older birds are tougher, in order to make it soft, you will have to spend extra effort.
If you have to cook a chicken, which was stored frozen and was previously plucked, gutted and butchered, don't defrost it in the oven or in hot water – it will worsen the taste of the meat and make it more rigid. Defrost chicken in fridge, leave for a half day. Do not freeze meat again, as a result the meat will lose some flavor and nutrients.
