I'm giving only 4 stars because I modified the recipe, but it turned out fantastic. I made this for my mom for Mother's Day because she said she wanted grilled chicken that was flavored with garlic and herbs, but not sweet. So I started with the crushed garlic and the dried spices (except saffron and sage because I didn't have any on hand) then added a few tablespoons of olive oil and the honey, but left out the sugar. I had watched the video on this site about making marinades, and they said that something acidic like lemon juice or vinegar helps tenderize the meat and keep it moist. So I then added enough white wine vinegar and more olive oil to make a good marinade consistency. I let 3 boneless chicken breasts marinate overnight, turning once, and grilled the next afternoon. They were delicious! The only change I might make would be to put in less salt because I felt it was a little on the salty side, but my parents thought it was fine. I think because I marinated it longer it may have picked up more salt from the marinade than it would have if it had only been 20 minutes or so. But it was so good that my mom wants me to make it for my brother's wedding rehearsal dinner this fall!
