Well, I am still in a football tailgate munchie-type mood. And what better way to feed the munchies than with some chicken wings! These aren’t the standard Buffalo hot wing chicken wing. Not that there is anything wrong with those – I personally love them. But it’s always nice to have a little variety in life – right?

I created these wings for a wing contest sponsored by a popular morning tv talk show a few years back. The jam gives them a touch of sweetness, the cayenne gives it a nice kiss of heat, and the wasabi powder, soy sauce and ginger add an Asian influence with a just a touch more heat. They are so flavorful don’t worry about a dipping sauce, these babies don’t need it. You may as well make a double batch, you will need them.
