Crispy Chickpeas: Pat chick peas dry with paper towel. Toss half of the chickpeas with seasoning. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat; cook chickpeas for about 15 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Repeat with remaining chick peas, seasoning and oil.
Coconut Rice: In saucepan, bring 1/2 cup coconut milk and 2 1/2 cups water to boil; stir in rice. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 18 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Fluff with fork before serving.
