    Goodbye, soft shell. We hardly knew you.

    I mean, just look at that thick, fried, crunchy fantasy come to life.

    Are you feeling things yet?

    The shell is made with 4 ounces of all-white-meat chicken and stuffed with lettuce, diced tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and avocado ranch.

    For your own Naked Chicken Chalupa, you'll have to wait until Jan. 26, when they'll appear on menus nationwide.
