Spicy Garlic Parmesan Chickpeas

The other night I wanted something different to eat and since I wasn’t that hungry, I decided to make more of a lunch as a dinner and seeing how I was cooking just for me, why not. Do you ever do that? When it’s just you sometimes you think why not a bowl of cereal or a sandwich? Sometimes I find these meals are more enjoyable, maybe because it’s not the norm or because it’s something different but regardless of why this lunch/dinner was tasty so I thought I would share.

This also seems like it would be good for you but it’s only a little good for you because I use a premade sauce that is loaded with sugar and preservatives but if you eat 80 percent good for you and 20 percent bad then I guess this recipe is okay after all but if you would like to make your own sauce then that would make this recipe better for you.

The star of this recipe is the buffalo wing sauce. It comes in a wide variety of flavors plus you can usually buy it at any store, it is with all the other sauces and it’s not too pricey so this meal can be done on a budget. As you can see, I used the buffalo wing sauce that is parmesan garlic, so you may want to try any flavor of this sauce you prefer.

Spicy Parmesan Garlic Chickpeas:

Serves 3-4 total time 30-40 minutes.

1 15 ounce can of drained and rinsed chickpeas

Buffalo wing sauce (any flavor but I used Parmesan garlic)

1 of each color of orange, red, green bell peppers

4-5 cloves of garlic diced.

1 small white onion sliced.

Lettuce of your choice washed shredded or pulled apart.

1 pack of pita bread

This recipe is a great one to mix and match any kind of veggies or sauce that works for you.

After the chickpeas are washed make sure you dry them very well before you toss them in a bowl in the sauce of your choice. On a backing sheet place parchment paper down then pour the chickpeas onto the sheet. Bake the chickpeas in a 425 preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, just until they are slightly brown and have shrunk slightly.

While your chickpeas are in the oven slice your veggies and sauté them then transfer to a dish so you can make up your pita sandwiches.

After the chickpeas are cooked let them cool just slightly before putting them in a dish.

Assemble your pita sandwiches and enjoy.
