These garlic parmesan roasted chickpeas are extremely simple and a great recipe to have as a snack. I doubled the batch because I knew I would be snacking on these all week long. My kids will be eating them for school as well since they are extremely healthy and high on fiber which will keep them full longer.

Well I hope you get to make this recipe. If you like legumes this is a fabulous different way to add chickpeas into your diet.

When you make these roasted chickpeas you can add some cayenne and curry powder if you like. I added some extra parmesan. I love any type of cheese and so do my kids so I was very generous with it!

  1. I make the same thing, but don’t bake it for anywhere near as long. Ten minutes on one side, turn over, and five on the other. Make sure to spray some veg spray before baking, and when you turn them over. In my experience, the short baking time guarantees that they will be really moist.

  2. Queenscook,

    I do grease the baking pan prior and also bake the chicken a bit longer but at a lower temperature. We like it this way better but you can cook the chicken a shorter amount of time if you prefer at a higher temperature. I guess it is just what one’s prefers :-)

  3. I love how easy and healthy this recipe is. The extra crunch factor from the panko, too.

  4. MMMM! I love Chicken Nuggets so much! Homemade nuggets are soo much better than store bought!!

  5. These look so good! And quick & easy too.
