  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Line a large roasting pan with foil. Tie chicken legs together and tuck wings under. Arrange chickens in pan; lightly rub with 2 tablespoons oil and season with poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  2. Place chickens in oven; roast 45 minutes. Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir 6 to 8 minutes or until golden and tender.

  3. Stir in juice, maple syrup, mustard, and zest. Bring to a boil; cook uncovered 6 minutes or until slightly thickened.

  4. Brush glaze over chickens during the last 15 minutes of roasting, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F in thighs and juices run clear. Serve with any remaining glaze, garnished with fresh sage.
