The fast food industry’s “fried chicken wars” is in full effect and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Taco Bell has just announced the launch of its new Crispy Tortilla Chicken. Taco Bell said that its new menu item will feature “premium all-white meat chicken in bold jalapeno buttermilk flavored marinade and rolled in a crunchy tortilla chip coating.”
In recent times, we have seen the likes of Chick-fil-A, Popeyes, KFC, and McDonald’s compete for the title of best crispy chicken sandwich. Everyone remembers the chicken sandwich feud that took social media by storm. But now, Taco Bell is making its presence known.
Taco Bell is sticking to its roots and will be serving its new Crispy Tortilla Chicken taco-style, and it will cost just $1.99. Not a taco fan? Don’t worry. Taco Bell has you covered. You will be able to purchase the Crispy Tortilla Chicken Strips, as well. You can pick up a 2-piece for $2.99, a 3-piece for $3.99, or one of their $5 or $7 boxes.
However, the company is playing it safe to start. Taco Bell is launching a test run of its new Crispy Tortilla Chicken, and it will only be available in Houston and Dayton, Ohio. But, thankfully for all of us, the company promises the new menu item will hit all locations as early as 2020. What a way to ring in the New year.
