Taco Bell Has Created a Taco Shell Made Out of Fried Chicken
Is your body ready for this jelly?
Taco Bell has apparently been quietly testing out a taco with a shell made entirely out of chicken meat. In other words: it’s secretly rolling out its own version of KFC’s Double Down, which is two pieces of fried chicken sandwiching pieces of bacon and cheese.
The internet first caught wind of this heart-stopping creation last week when a photo of it surfaced online.

According to a Reddit user named Cheez4444, the chicken-only taco — which consists of a friend chicken shell cradling lettuce, cheese and tomatoes — was “pretty good” and “a little spicy.”
So, what’s exactly this mythical fast food beast? A rep for the Mexican joint tells Buzzfeed that dish is called Naked Crispy Chicken Taco and is currently in the testing stage at selected locations.
“The Naked Crispy Chicken Taco is our latest food innovation that delivers on our commitment to provide craveable, fun food you can only get at Taco Bell,” the spokesperson says. “It’s our first and only taco with its shell made from premium, all-white meat chicken and filled with shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese and fresh diced ripe tomatoes. We’re conducting a small test in Bakersfield, California and will roll out nationally if successful.”
This news follows Taco Bell’s recent announcement that it will be offering delivery service in certain parts of the United States.
