Step:

  1. Wash the chicken carefully inside and out, and pat dry. I used a fairly small 1 kg bird this time.

  4. Take care of the neck. Bend it forward so that it covers the neck cavity.

  5. Pull the skin on the top and bottom of the neck, and fold it over the neck as if to hide it. Secure with a toothpick.
