Mix all marinade ingredients together in large vessel or bowl. Add chickens and cover. Put in refrigerator overnight or for at least 4 hours.
Pre-heat oven at 400 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix rub ingredients together. Remove chickens from marinade and cover with rub. Place in roasting pan and cook for 1 1/2 hours in oven, or until done. Remove from heat when done and let rest 15 minutes before cutting.
In a large saute pan, add oil and shallots. Saute until soft. Add syrup and dried cranberries. Stir for a few minutes. Add wine, and reduce by half. Add broth to pan and add salt and pepper, to taste. Strain through a fine strainer. Return strained liquid to pan and add fresh cranberries. Cook until they start to pop. Turn off heat. If a thicker sauce is preferred, add 1 tablespoon arrowroot to 1 tablespoon water, stir, and then add to sauce. Bring to a boil and,serve over chicken.
