Although no one can say for sure whether or not Taco Bell’s shredded chicken will return to menus across the country, let alone be permanently reinstated like its Mexican Pizza, those odds seem to be improving each day. Sure, the Cheesy Street Chalupas with shredded chicken are only a test product that will only be offered in a single city, but they represent hope. After all, Taco Bell recently brought back shredded chicken — albeit briefly — in its rolled chicken tacos and tested an empanada stuffed with shredded chicken and cheese. All this could point to the chain looking for a new way to present fans with their beloved shredded chicken.
In the meantime, Taco Bell still offers grilled chicken, available as a core ingredient in items like the Chicken Enchilada Burrito, Chicken Chipotle Melt, and Chicken Quesadilla. Of course, you can also request grilled chicken on pretty much any other menu item, which will hopefully tide you over until shredded chicken potentially returns.
