Good Weird: KFC’s new fried chicken taco, the ‘Chaco’ now available in PH

KFC Philippines announced today that their new food hybrid the “Chaco” is now available in stores and for delivery nationwide.

“The latest chicken innovation from KFC is here! The big boss of tacos,” KFC Philippines said in the post. “No shell. All chicken. That’s how we do it!”

The fast-food giant’s Chaco switches the corn (or flour) tortilla with a chicken fillet that’s folded like a taco. It is stuffed with shredded lettuce, salsa, corn, taco-spiced mayo, and grated cheese.

This might sound wacky — and perhaps not all too structurally sound — but it’s actually a lot like the KFC Double Down, a sandwich made with two pieces of fried chicken fillet rather than hamburger buns.

Here in the Philippines, of course, people usually pair it with an order of rice and a bowl of unlimited gravy, so that will probably be the case with the Chaco too.

Customers can get it a la carte for PHP99 (US$1.89); with fries and a drink for PHP145 (US$2.77), or with a Fully Loaded meal, which includes a piece of fried chicken and spaghetti for PHP219 (US$4.19).
