Chicken Under a Brick with Avocados and Chiles Recipe

kept byCelestielj
recipe byEpicurious
Notes: 

This technique encourages even cooking with the crispiest skin imaginable. The key to success is to cook the chicken over medium-low coals so the skin slowly renders out the fat. As for those grilled avocados, you're in for a treat. They're already our go-to side this summer.
