Continuing its effort to offer innovative fast food dishes, Taco Bell has dreamed up a new side dish called Crispy Chicken Chips. Catering to the growing demand for bite-sized snacks, these chips provide a delicious new way to indulge in fried chicken.

The new Crispy Chicken Chips consist of chicken meat that has been shaped into bite-sized triangles, battered and then deep-fried. The chips are also served with a side of nacho cheese sauce for dipping. The new dish is currently being tested at an undisclosed Taco Bell location, with no word on whether the savory side dish will become a permanent menu item.

While the idea of turning chicken into chips may seem unusual, brands such as Burger King and White Castle already offer chicken tenders in unusual shapes such as fries and rings.
