You get a chicken sandwich, and you get a chicken sandwich, and you get a chicken sandwich … taco? That’s what you can soon grab at Taco Bell, anyway!
After making some recent cuts (sorry, Mexican Pizza lovers—it is, indeed, gone for good), the iconic Tex-Mex chain is adding a new menu item to join the recently reintroduced Nacho Fries. Joining in the melee that is the continuing fast-food chicken war, Taco Bell will soon launch a new Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco.
It features premium, all-white-meat fried chicken breast marinated in jalapeño buttermilk, seasoned with Mexican spices, then rolled in a tortilla chip coating. It’s served in puffy bread with creamy chipotle sauce, and it’ll be available in both a regular and spicy version.
The Chicken Sandwich Taco will debut at Taco Bell locations in Nashville, TN, and Charlotte, NC, beginning March 11 and will retail for $2.49. A nationwide release is set to happen later in 2021.
Keep your eyes peeled on Taco Bell’s social media for updates on the latest contender in the infamous chicken sandwich wars.
