        Directions

        For the chicken sofrito: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the chicken in a large roasting pan and cover with water and sprinkle with seasoning salt. Roast in the oven, about 2 hours. Remove the chicken and let cool. Remove the chicken from the bone and place in a roasting pan with some chicken stock.

        Meanwhile for the sofrito: Chop and blend the green peppers, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, red pepper and parsley in a food processor or blender. Pour the mixture into a large stock pot and cook slowly over low heat, about 1 hour. Remove the pot from the heat and cool. Add 1 cup sofrito to the chicken, or more if desired.

        For the roasted potatoes: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the potatoes and onions on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt. Bake, about 12 minutes. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and stir the potatoes and onions with a spatula. Return to the oven and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

        For the kicky sauce: Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise, garlic, lime juice, vinegar, cilantro, jalapenos and culantro in a food processor and blend until smooth.

        For assembly: Place the roasted potatoes in the bottom of a serving dish. Cover with the chicken sofrito and sprinkle with cheese and "kicky sauce". Top with the bacon and serve.
