Bring broth, apple juice, Dijon, 1 tablespoon butter, salt, pepper, dried thyme, oregano, parsley and bay leaf to a boil in a large nonstick skillet. Add rice, cover and reduce heat to low until rice is tender (about 45-60 minutes. Once cooked, drain rice and leave in fine hole strainer to filter.
Over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter to the now empty pan. Increase heat to medium high and add onions and apples and sauté for 7 minutes. Sauté for 30 more seconds with added garlic.
Return rice to skillet along with cranberries and pecans, mix and remove from heat. Serve immediately.
