Water is the enemy of crunch, so make sure you remove as much moisture as possible after rinsing the chickpeas. Use paper towels to remove any surface moisture, and if you have time, let them air-dry for 30 minutes before tossing with oil and baking the chickpeas with oil and seasoning. Preheat oven to 400º. on a large baking sheet and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until golden brown and crunchy. Chickpeas can be roasted up to 1 day ahead. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container. Can be served at room temperature or briefly reheated, about 5 minutes at 400º. .
