Creamy risotto with chickpeas and zucchini chips

Today a super tasty and creamy risotto: the creamy risotto with chickpeas and zucchini chips. Lately I’ve been preparing a lots of risottos, and by making it, I realized that you can really do it with plenty of different flavours. I had some leftovers of chickpeas, so I thought that adding them to the risotto could have been a good idea to make it creamier. But, in my opinion, something crispy was left, so I thought to make some zucchini chips. Well my friends, this is something really incredible and spectacular, you absolutely to try and let me know what you think about it!
