Clean the chicken, then set it in a large bowl. Season the chicken with the seasonings, and garlic, and rub in.
Cover and refrigerate the chicken for two hours.
Pour 1/4 vegetable oil into a pan, and turn the heat to medium high. Once the oil is hot, place the chicken into the pan.
Fry each side of the chicken until it browns, then remove the chicken and set it on a plate.
Add the carrots and onions to the pan, and fry until they soften. Pour out most of the oil, then add the ketchup. Stir the ingredients, and reduce the heat to medium.
Place the chicken back into pan, then pour in 2 cups of hot water.
Cover the pan with a lid, and let simmer 45 minutes. Be sure to stir occasionally so that nothing burns at the bottom of the pan.
