Chicken Tarragon Risotto

Total time: 30 minutes
     Tarragon is a classic pairing with chicken.  A bit of carrot, leek and celeriac make this a complete dinner, with just a hint  of spring-time flavors. As with all risottos, this will be quite soft when finished.  It will continue to absorb liquid and the leftovers (if any) will be very stiff.  The risottos that we have eaten in northern Italy have all been served in soup plates (flattish bowls) and eaten with a spoon - not a fork.
