Sweet and Zesty Grilled Chicken, Broccoli, Cauliflower

This grilled chicken recipe is adapted from Bessy's Zesty Grilled Garlic-Herb Chicken on AllRecipes. I've just made a few minor changes.

Sweet and Zesty Grilled Chicken
4 chicken breasts, cut in half
2/3 c extra virgin olive oil
1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 t honey
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 t dried basil
1 t dried thyme
1 t cayenne pepper
1 t salt
1/2 t dried oregano
1/4 t dried parsley
1 pinch sage

Place chicken in a shallow dish. In a medium bowl, mix together olive oil, sugar, honey, garlic, basil, thyme, cayenne, salt, oregano, parsley, and sage. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cover, and marinate 20 to 25 minutes in the fridge (If you marinate any longer, you'll have to pull the chicken out of the fridge a little early to let the olive oil go back to a liquid state). Preheat grill to medium heat. Lightly oil the grill grate. Discard marinade, and place chicken on the grill Cook about 10 minutes on each side, or until the exterior is charred and juiced run clear.

Serve with steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and maybe a little corn on the cob!
