Orange and Pecan Hot Wings

1 Cut chicken wings into three pieces, discarding the wing tips.
2 In a bowl, whisk eggs and orange juice concentrate. In another bowl, combine flour and pecans. Dip wings in egg mixture, then roll in flour mixture.
3 Spread wings on a foil-covered baking sheet and bake, uncovered at 375°F (190°C) for 25 minutes.
