1 egg, beaten
1 Tbls. parsley

Prepare rice according to box directions. Saute onion in 2 tbls. butter. Combine rice, onion, apple, egg, parsley and thyme; stir well. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Place chicken breasts on top of rice dressing. Brush them with the remaining butter and salt and pepper them.

** I sometimes like to saute fresh mushroom along with the onions. It makes a nice addition.
