1 1/2 Tbsp sweet paprika
1 Tbsp granulated onion powder
1 Tbsp ground black pepper
1 Tsp ancho chili powder
2 1/2 Tsp chipotle powder
1 Tsp Turmeric powder
2 Tsp coriander
2 Tsp cumin
2 Tbsp oregano
2 Tbsp cilantro flakes if you can’t find omit

Home made spicy creamy cilantro dressing
1 bunch cilantro stem okay
3 to 4 cloves garlic
1 jalapeño seeds and all

you can put young/fingerling potatoes, onions and carrots in the drip pan with herbs of your joice and maybe some thinly sliced lemons. As the chicken fat runs out, it fries the taters in the pan and caramelizes the onions/carrots. Sometimes the chicken cooks too quickly, and I will pull it the grill going full bore (400 - 425) for 10-15 mins while the chicken rests and gets cut up. Easy side, with no additional dishes.
