1Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add the chicken, skin side down, and cook until golden, about 6 minutes. Flip and cook 2-3 more minutes, then transfer to a plate. Pour off all but 2 T. of the drippings.
2Add the onion and apples to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook until slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Mix the broth with the mustard, then add to the skillet and bring to a boil. Arrange the chicken, skin side up, in the skillet. Transfer to the oven and roast until the chicken is cooked through, 15-20 minutes.
3Mix the butter and flour to form a paste. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken, apples and onion to plated. Bring the pan juices to a simmer, whisk in about half of the butter-flour mixture and boil to thicken, 2 minutes. Continue to cook. adding more of the butter-flour mixture as needed to make a slightly thick gravy. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over chicken and sprinkle with parsley.
