• 8 large chicken thighs
• 1 lb (450 g) new potatoes
• Salt and black pepper
• 5 tbsp (75 ml) olive oil
• 2 large cloves garlic

3. Meanwhile, arrange chicken, skin-sides down, on grill rack. Brush with 1 1/2 tbsp (20 ml) oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and broil 10 minutes.

4. While chicken is cooking, put remaining oil into small pot. Peel garlic, crush into oil and shake over moderate heat until just beginning to sizzle. Turn off heat. Beat in mayonnaise with 2 tbsp (25 ml) very hot water from kettle, then cover and keep warm.

5. Drain potatoes, return to pot and crush with fork until roughly broken open and slightly ?attened.

6. Divide chicken thighs potatoes among 4 plates. Spoon over mayonnaise, sprinkle with black pepper, and serve.
