Rinse and drain a can of cooked chickpeas and pat dry well with a paper towel, then season with salt, black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil coating the chickpeas completely. Spread them out on a baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray. Roast them for about  25 minutes on high heat, shaking the pan once halfway through, and there you have it! Delicious roasted chickpeas!
