Introducing The Taco Bell Chicken Sandwich Taco

Introducing The Taco Bell Chicken Sandwich Taco

Taco Bell has officially entered itself into the so-called “chicken sandwich wars” with a new “Chicken Sandwich Taco” announced yesterday.  The chain describes the item as a sandwich/taco hybrid, made with a crispy piece of all-white-meat chicken which has been marinated in jalapeno-infused buttermilk before being dusted with “bold Mexican spices” and rolled in a tortilla-chip coating. Then chicken is then sandwiched in “a puffy bread, shaped in an iconic taco form,” and topped with creamy chipotle sauce. The “spicy” version also comes with pickled jalapenos.  The new items, which cost $2.49 apiece, will begin testing in Nashville and Charlotte on March 11. A nationwide rollout scheduled for later in 2021.  “Is the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco a sandwich or a taco, you ask? Well, it’s a sandwich AND a taco,” reads a press release for the forthcoming item. “And it doesn’t have to explain itself to be this delicious.”
