Pan Fried Chickpeas

Submitted by: MONIRAQ

Introduction

Honestly, one of the best snacks I've ever wrapped my lips around! I do this with hominy sometimes too!
*The key to a good fry is to make sure the chickpeas are DRY when they go into the skillet.

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained, rinsed, and dry.
    2t. olive oil
    2t. lemon zest
    3t. kosher salt
    1t. paprika

Directions

Heat olive oil in flat skillet. (Make sure skillet is large enough for chickpeas to lay flat during cooking. If they bunch up they tend to steam rather than fry.)
Add drained chickpeas to hot oil and pan fry until they start getting slightly brown and crispy.
Toss with salt, lemon zest, and paprika.
Serve while warm and crispy.

You can try to store them in an airtight container but they lose their crisp quickly. Best to eat them all at once!!

  • Just tried making these. I used MUCH less salt than the recipe. Just a couple of pinches. Used just paprika on half the can and lemon pepper on the other half. Hubby loved them! I didn't get very many!!! Gonna try more flavors!
