Chop the garlic and ginger together in the Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus. Sprinkle the wings thoroughly with 2 teaspoons of the five spice powder. Place the wings in a sealable plastic bag with the soy sauce and chopped garlic and ginger. Manipulate the bag so that the wings are completely covered with the marinade ingredients. Leave in refrigerator for 2 hours. While wings are marinating, prepare the sauce. Chop the jalapeno and ginger together in the Cuisinart Mini Prep and place in a small mixing bowl. Stir remaining sauce ingredients together into bowl. Stir together the remaining five spice powder and salt. Reserve. Once wings have marinated for the 2 hours preheat Cuisinart Deep Fryer to 375°F. Fry the wings in 3 batches. They should take approximately 9 minutes per batch; wings should be crispy and completely cooked through. Once each batch is fried place on layered paper towels and toss with a pinch of the five-spice salt. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
