Heat oil in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat; add onion; cook about 5 minutes, stirring often, until softened.

Place chicken pieces, skin side down, on hot grill rack; cook covered with grill cover, 15 minutes. Turn pieces over; cook, covered, another 10 minutes. Brush applesauce mixture liberally over chicken; cook, covered, 5 minutes longer until chicken is cooked through. Serve garnished with herb sprigs. NOTE: Chicken may be baked in oven.
