Pro tips:

To prep chickpeas, empty contents of a can into a strainer placed over the sink. Hold the strainer under running water to rinse them and let all the water drain well, before using.

Adding chickpeas before pre heating ensures that it gives an additional boost to dry up, which guarantees crispiness.
