Review: Taco Bell - Spicy Ranch Crispy Chicken Griller

Taco Bell's Spicy Ranch Crispy Chicken Griller features a piece of their tortilla-crusted crispy chicken with spicy ranch sauce wrapped up in a flour tortilla and grilled.

I paid $1.69 for one.

You can consider this Taco Bell's version of the chicken snack wraps you'll find at many-a-fast-food-chain, except without the lettuce and cheese.

Essentially, that leaves the flour tortilla as an edible sleeve to keep your fingers relatively clean and free of grease from the fried chicken. The flour tortilla develops a nice, thin crispy layer from grilling but it'll be soft by the time you eat it unless you're eating it right then and there (I took it home and they double wrapped it; once in foil and then in waxed paper so it was plenty soft and steamed). Either way, the grilling gives it a nice look.

Despite steaming in several layers (the tortilla, the foil, the waxed paper, the plastic bag), the chicken actually retained some crunch and was still very hot when I got home (probably on account of the foil). The chicken was moist with a nice, seasoned flavor and a surprising kick.

The spicy ranch sauce was actually less spicy than the chicken and added a creamy and slight tang that works well here.

Overall, Taco Bell's Spicy Ranch Crispy Chicken Griller was pretty good, especially if you like eating chicken strips without the mess or on-the-go. I would love it if they just offered their Crispy Chicken a la carte though.
