Mom's Tornado Chicken

                                 Mom's Tornado Chicken (baked version)

I know, I know it's a silly name, but it has a story behind it.
 Mom had the idea to make an alternative to BBQ chicken. She was Grilling away outdoors, when all of a sudden, a storm blew in.
The tornado sirens went off , and we all headed for the basement. It was over in a few minutes. We came out of the basement to find the back yard strewn with huge tree limbs. Lawn furniture tossed around. But there was the grill, still cooking away unscathed.
So understandably,  Mom's intrepid new dish got a name. It can be baked or grilled.

1 chicken - cut up
1cup ketchup
1tsp. garlic powder-plus more for the chicken
1tbl. la-choy soy sauce

Mix together the ketchup garlic and soy sauce. Set aside.
Sprinkle additional garlic powder on the chicken.
Grill or bake the chicken until cooked through.
Baste with sauce, and cook until the sauce becomes a thick glaze. Serve.
