Naked Chicken Chalupa from Taco Bell Coming January 26

On Thursday, January 26th, Taco Bell will be launching their latest creation… the Naked Chicken Chalupa.  The Naked Chicken Chalupa is described like this:

The shell is 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 mouthwatering combination brings a fresh, crisp flavor with a kick of spice to the menu like never before.

We caught a glimpse of the Naked Chicken Chalupa when it was testing last year.. the idea is reminiscent of KFC’s Double Down.  The Naked Chicken Chalupa will come with a suggested price of $2.99 and will also be included in a $5 Box alongside the Doritos Locos Taco, Crunchy Taco and Medium Drink.
