Saw this recipe in this month's Food Network Magazine, glad it works! I would add spice for more zing, but nice to see a crunchy snack with some protein!

Thanks, I love roasted veggies, but never thought of doing chickpeas. Before I try this, could you describe how the flavor might be different from just warming them in a pot? Also, do you need to serve them right away, or will they hold up for a while?

Roasting the chickpeas makes them crunchy and gives them a nutty flavor. You can add any spices to them that you like. Eating them right away is best but you can store than for a few days and they will be fine.
