    The sign at a Taco Bell in Mount Lebanon, Pa., as seen on May 23, 2014. Taco Bell announced plans today to go nationwide with its Naked Chicken Chalupa, a taco with a shell made out of fried chicken.

IRVINE, Calif. >> Taco Bell plans to go nationwide this month with its latest concoction: a taco with a shell made entirely out of fried chicken.

Taco Bell says the shell of the Naked Chicken Chalupa is made up of all-white seasoned chicken. The rest of the taco is packed with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and avocado ranch sauce.

The fast food chain says the taco tested well in markets in Bakersfield, California, and Kansas City, Missouri, over the past two years.

It will be available at Taco Bells across the country on Jan. 26.
