Baking Directions:

Baking Directions:Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cover a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Put chicken wing pieces on the pan and bake for 40 minutes then turn each wing over and continue another 10 minutes or more until wing pieces are golden brown and looks crispy. Remove pan from oven and let cool. In a blender put the brown sugar, orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, marmalade, minced garlic and minced ginger. Blend on high speed for about 15-20 seconds. Pour mixture into a medium size heavy sauce pan scraping all sauce out of blender with a spatula into the saucepan.  Put sauce pan on stove and bring to a rolling boil and boil hard (stirring occasionally) for about 9 -12 minutes until like a very thick syrup. (The mixture should be dark and thick like molasses.)  Remove from heat and add wasabi paste and diced jalapeno and blend well.Put one third of the baked wings into the sauce and cover completely with sauce. Remove wings and put back on pan. Continue with remaining pieces. Make sure all wing pieces are completely covered with sauce. Drizzle remaining sauce (if any) over top of pieces again. Arrange chicken wings on a platter and sprinkle each piece generously with the crushed wasabi peas. Garnish platter with additional whole wasabi peas if desired.  Makes about 18 wing pieces and serves about 4. Expect rave reviews, finger licking and everyone clamoring for more!NOTE: If desire even more heat add more wasabi paste and substitute a habanero pepper for the jalepeno pepper. For extreme heat add more wasabi paste and substitute small Thai chilies for the jalapeno pepper.
