The chickpea, sometimes called the Garbanzo bean has been around since Man began cultivating and is a main staple of many diets, yet the lowly chickpea has often been relegated to not much more than a hummus ingredient here in the States.
This is as close as you can get to a “set it and forget” chicken, and the method (so easy it’s hardly a method at all) is pretty much hands off, all the way. No fussy turning the bird upside down, adjusting temperature, etc. This is just a classic roast chicken. Period.
