  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Spread the sliced onion oven the bottom of the oven dish, and drizzle with olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Brush the chicken with a little bit of olive oil. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the chicken on the onion slices in one layer, skin side down. Set aside.
  5. In a bowl, mix together the heavy whipping cream, white wine, Dijon mustard, whole-grain mustard, and half of the chopped parsley. Salt to taste.
