According to CNBC.com, Taco Bell is at least the fourth fast food chain this month to announce a new chicken sandwich. Ever since Popeyes’ released their chicken sandwich in August 2019 every major fast food chain has followed in their attempt to have the best new chicken sandwich. In fact, the demand for white meat chicken in fast food restaurants is growing faster than beef.
Earlier this year, Taco Bell announced they had a new product coming out that would “interrupt” the chicken sandwich wars entirely. Just yesterday (February 22) we received the official announcement of the Taco Bell Crispy Chicken Sandwich Tacos. The tacos will be served on a flatbread with crispy tortilla chicken and a chipotle sauce. There will also be a spicy version available with jalapenos. Taco Bell also said this won’t be their only crispy chicken product coming out this year.
Starting March 11th customers in Nashville, Tennessee and Charlotte, North Caroline will be the first to test the new tacos. Still no word on when the tacos will be available everywhere.
