Method: 
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 grill and lightly oil grill rack. Position the 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.
