Place the chicken breasts in a bowl or resealable gallon sized bag. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the olive oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, lemon zest, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 24 hours. Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium. Add the chicken in a single layer. Cook for 6-8 minutes per side, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken registers 165 degrees F. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with additional parsley for garnish, then slice and serve.
