Lemme see what I can do. Zambian food is generally to plain for my palate.
They certainly love their salt and oil here (but nothing much else)
I'll put on my thinking cap ;)

This was dinner tonight. It started off being picked to use in "Eat Your Pantry" using "yellow mustard". But I decided to post it here because it is a "Carolina" recipe.

Carolina-Style Barbecue Chicken

1/2 cup yellow mustard
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 TB. mustard powder
2 tsp. hot sauce
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 TB. unsalted butter, melted
8 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs
vegetable oil for brushing
1 large tomato, sliced

1. Preheat a grill to medium. Whisk the yellow mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard powder, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl. Whisk in the butter.
2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then toss with about one-third of the mustard sauce in a large bowl until coated. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
3. Brush the grill grates generously with vegetable oil. Put about 1/4 cup of the remaining mustard sauce in a small bowl for basting and reserve the rest for topping. Grill the chicken, covered, basting occasionally with the sauce, until well marked and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 170 degrees F, 10 to 12 minutes per side.
4. Serve the chicken with the reserved mustard sauce, and sliced tomato.
