Get Ready: Taco Bell Is Releasing a Fried Chicken Taco Shell Nationwide

You might want to sit down for this life-changing news. Taco Bell is releasing a fried chicken taco shell nationwide on Jan. 26. That's right: not only can you satisfy your late-night munchies with a cheesy taco, but you can also take care of your fried chicken craving in the same bite. The official name of the new menu item is the Naked Chicken Chalupa, and according to a statement from Taco Bell, it's made with "four ounces of marinated, all-white-meat, antibiotic-free chicken kicked up with bold Mexican spices and seasoning, and is packed with fresh shredded lettuce, diced ripe tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and creamy avocado ranch." The chalupa costs $3, which is honestly a very small price to pay for a food hybrid from the junk-food gods. You know how your crunchy taco shell always seems to fall apart halfway through? The sturdy chicken vessel should solve that problem forever.
