Simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until juices thicken slightly and shallots are tender. Add frozen peas (if using) and lemon slices to pan. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until heated through. To serve, return chicken to pan, sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon tarragon. If desired, drizzle with remaining honey.
