Using your fingers, rub grated lemon zest into kosher salt until well combined. Rub the lemon salt all over the skin and inside the cavity of a whole chicken. Stuff a few lemon halves into the cavity. Refrigerate the chicken, uncovered, from a few hours to overnight. Brush the chicken with melted butter, season with black pepper, and roast in a hot oven until just cooked through.
