Ok, so we didn't have all of the ingredients in our own pantry, but I ran downstairs to our local “supermarket” (really, it is a big bodega), watched the video, washed my hands and voilà. An easy, delicious dinner. Thank you, Mr. Bittman. Delicious.
We used panko instead of breadcrumbs.
p.s. We turned the extra chickpeas into a crunchy snack. A little oo, s & p, as my sister would say. And smoked paprika.
