Taco Bell originally tested the fried chicken taco at Bakersfield, California restaurants in September 2015, and in Kansas locations in April 2016.
Yum! Brands, Taco Bell’s parent company, has taken fried chicken to daring places in the past. In 2010, KFC debuted the “Double Down,” a sandwich with bacon, cheese and mayo sandwiched between two fried chicken “buns.”
