  • 4 (15 oz) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning


  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place the chickpeas on kitchen towels and lightly rub to remove excess moisture. Then remove loose skin.
  3. Add the chickpeas to a large bowl and drizzle the oil on top. Toss the chickpeas until all are coated with oil.
  4. Spread out the chickpeas between the two large sheet pans. You want enough space between them to crisp up!
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and transfer roasted chickpeas to a large bowl where you will add the seasoning. Toss contents in bowl until seasoning covers each chickpea.
