Roast Chicken with Cheese Mash and Garlic Gravy

I love roast chicken and often follow Nigel's advice to squich roast garlic cloves into the winey deglazed pan juices, so I knew we'd love this recipe. Served with Nigel's suggestion of cheese mash, it was the ultimate comfort food for a Saturday night, with maple syrup-roasted parsnips and shredded spring greens. A bottle of Cotes du Rhone topped it off nicely - all in all a brilliant accompaniment to Il Trovatore and sex-God Dmitri Hvorostovsky on Radio 3. Does life get any better?! I don't know which is more tasty, the chicken or Dmitri - well....... actually, I do...............
