Dry the chickpeas - Rub them dry using a clean dishtowel or paper towels. (They must be very dry in order to get crisp.)
Toss in oil - Toss dry chickpeas with a neutral oil, dried spices or dried herbs and salt and pepper.
Cook chickpeas - Cook chickpeas until they are very dry and golden- crisp on the outside. Do this in a skillet at medium-high for 8 to 10 minutes, in the oven at 425°F for 20 to 30 minutes, in the air fryer at 375°F for 12 to 16 minutes.
