    • thigh of a chicken, a.k.a itanta lya nkoko.

      A Lozi lady workmate of mine in the mines sometime back used to advertise her broiler chickens for sale when they are ready by saying, “icitanta candi ica nkoko nacikula..!”

  1. Marinate, Kanta, marinate..! Marinade is the noun; what you make after you marinate (verb).
