  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chopped tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

In a wide, shallow dish, stir together lemon juice, orange juice, ginger, tarragon, salt, pepper, and garlic. Add chicken, turn to coat, cover, and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for 2 to 3 hours.

Prepare a fire in a grill. Position the oiled grill rack 4 to 6 inches above the fire. Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry; reserve the marinade. Arrange chicken on the rack and grill, turning two or three times and brushing with the reserved marinade, until chicken is no longer pink in the middle, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to plates and serve.
