  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Add the pancetta and stir for 2 minutes until it is sizzling and starting to colour.

  2. Add the chicken pieces and stir around for 2 minutes. Stir in the leeks, garlic and courgettes and fry, stirring frequently, for 3–5 minutes until they soften.

  3. Stir in the rice, then pour in the wine. Increase the heat and simmer, stirring until almost all the wine has evaporated.

  4. Reduce the heat to moderate and start adding the stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring frequently.

  5. When there are just 2 ladles of stock left, stir in the peas. Continue adding the stock, stirring until the risotto is moist and creamy. Season to taste, then serve sprinkled with fresh basil.
