Roast chicken - salting??

I have a roast chicken recipe that calls to salt the chicken. Can anyone telling me what that means? Does it just mean rubbing salt all over it??
I made an Eberly turkey Sunday (don't ask). It was beautiful if I do say so. I carved it, looked great, cooked right, juicy. I tasted it and was disappointed. Damn...$33 for a 12 lb turkey and it was just so-so. Moist and good texture but no flavor. So after my husband eats some and says how great it is (always wait to provide a negative review of your own cooking) I tell him my opinion.
"you're nuts, he says, but I do notice that it's not salty at all and I know how you like salt". LIGHT COMES ON!! I was so carried away w/ making herb butter and rubbing down the chicken and stuffing the herb butter under the skin that I totally forgot to salt it. Makes a HUGE difference in flavor, IMO.
