Lay the chicken breast side down and using kitchen shears or sharp clean scissors cut out the backbone of the chicken.
Turn chicken over, breast side down, and spread it out on a baking sheet. Press down on the center between breasts to flatten as much as possible.
Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with seasoned salt. Rub chicken all over to evenly coat.
Bake at 350F until a meat thermometer inserted into the deepest part of the breast reads at least 165F. (See recipe notes for approximate times based on weight of chicken). Pictured is a 6 pound chicken that took approximately 80 minutes.
Allow chicken to rest about 10 minutes before carving.
