  1. In a small bowl whisk together 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, parsley, 1/4 teaspoon sugar, Dijon mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a zip-top bag, combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, garlic and water. Add chicken and turn to coat. Press out as much air as possible, seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning once after 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, start the charcoal fire and clean the grate.
  4. Remove chicken from the bag and place on the cooler side of the grate, thicker sides facing the coals. Cover with the pan and cook until light grill marks appear, 6-9 minutes. Flip the chicken and turn so the thinner side is facing the coals. Cover with pan and continue to cook another 6-9 minutes or until chicken registers 140 degrees with a meat thermometer.
  5. Move the chicken to the side with the coals and grill, uncovered, until dark grill marks appear; 1-2 minutes. Flip chicken and repeat process.
  6. Remove chicken to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, tented with foil. Slice breasts on the bias into 1/4-inch slices. Serve drizzled with reserved sauce.
