What Are the Best Marinades or Glazes for Grilled Chicken?

This weekend I am taking a platter of chicken over to a friend's. We're having a good old-fashioned cook-out, and I am already thinking of moist, flavorful grilled chicken. I have my eye on a couple of recipes, but I'd love to know: What do you think are the best recipes for marinades or glazes for tender grilled chicken?

Here are a few recipes that I have been considering:

Rosemary, honey, and mustard marinade at MyRecipes
Jerk chicken marinade at Epicurious - This crowd isn't afraid of heat, so some spice might be nice.
Chicken with Sriracha glaze - at MyRecipes

But what is your favorite, most trustworthy marinade or glaze for grilled chicken? Do you have any tips on getting the perfect flavor and texture?
