Sunday Supper: Brick Chicken with Smashed Potatoes

This recipe seasons the bird simply with salt and pepper and relies on the chicken's own fat and juice to produce a succulent final product. The smashed potatoes are just as simple, with Greek yogurt and fresh chives. Lots of beer and a green salad made with summer fresh produce are all you need to round out this meal. More
