Taco Bell to introduce Naked Chicken Chalupa


http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-taco-bell-fried-chicken-taco-shell-20170111-story.html
 

Taco Bell plans to go nationwide this month with its latest concoction: a taco with a shell made entirely out of fried chicken.
 
Taco Bell says the shell of the Naked Chicken Chalupa is made up of all-white seasoned chicken. The rest of the taco is packed with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and avocado ranch sauce.
 
The fast food chain says the taco tested well in markets in Bakersfield, Calif., and Kansas City, Mo., over the past two years.
 
It will be available at Taco Bells across the country on Jan. 26.

    Add Nashville Hot Chicken Sauce and you might get me to try it.

    Once again Bakersfield is the bellwether of modern gastronomy.
     
    But since KC is also mentioned I think this needs to be part of the Tour in April!!

    I weirdly respect Taco Bell for being openly and unashamedly gluttonous in a way that no other brand has really achieved. KFC made a good run there, but having the Famous Bowl alone isn't enough to compete with Taco Bell's gamut of goods.

    It's really just Taco Bell's version of KFC's Double Down sandwich
