    El Pollo Loco launched its Chickenless Pollo Taco and Burrito. 

    El Pollo Loco is introducing a plant-based chicken systemwide with the launch of its new Chickenless Pollo Taco and Burrito. 

    The brand bypassed the popular suppliers in the space and instead created its own plant-based protein for the new Chickenless Pollo Taco and Burrito. The recipe uniquely blends authentic Mexican flavors in an adobo sauce with a non-GMO 100 percent soy protein base that mirrors shredded chicken—all done with the better-for-you spirit of Los Angeles, El Pollo Loco’s hometown.

    El Pollo Loco will continue to evolve and diversify its menu with purpose to make healthier living more accessible and convenient with additional Chickenless Pollo innovations in the pipeline.

    “We are closely listening to what our customers are saying and feel confident the new Chickenless Pollo Taco and Burrito menu items will meet their lifestyle needs,” said Bernard Acoca, president and CEO at El Pollo Loco.
