    Taco Bell is ready to unleash the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco. What is it? It’s a sandwich and a taco.

    The Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco is testing in Nashville, Tennessee, and Charlotte, North Carolina, beginning March 11, with a nationwide debut later this year.

    The Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco features premium all-white-meat crispy chicken, marinated in jalapeño buttermilk, then seasoned with bold Mexican spices and rolled in a crunchy tortilla chip coating.

    Taco Bell is offering both a regular and a spicy sidekick. Each sandwich is served in a puffy bread, shaped in an iconic taco form and filled with a piece of crispy tortilla chicken and flavorful signature creamy chipotle sauce. The spicy version includes crunchy jalapeño slices for those who can take the heat.

    The craveable sandwich taco will be available for a limited time at participating locations in Nashville and Charlotte, beginning March 11 for just $2.49.

    This isn’t Taco Bell’s only crispy chicken innovation arriving in 2021, either.

    The brand is no stranger to crispy chicken after having introduced fan-favorites such as Crispy Chicken Chickstar (2015), the Naked Chicken Chips (2017) and Naked Chicken Chalupa (2017), which flipped the script on traditional chicken menu items.
