Mix Preserves, Dressing, and Onion mix. Arrange chicken in a baking dish; pour mix over chicken; Marinade 3+ hours, refrigerated.
Bake at 325F-350F 45 min to 1 hour, until juices clear. To crisp chicken, cook the last 15 min under the broiler. Prepare rice with parsley; serve chicken over rice.
My preference is to bake chicken about 30 min and finish over a med-high grill, basting with some of the sauce and saving some to pour over chicken and rice at serving.
