A new covariant quantization of chiral bosons in the chiral Schwinger model with faddeevian regularization is carried out from Batalin-Fradkin (BF) algorithm. In order to turn the second class chiral constraint into first class constraints, infinitely many BF fields are first introduced. When combined with Batalin-Fradkin-Vilkovisky (BFV) formalism, two kinds of BRST-invariant actions have been derived. The first contains the Wess-Zumino action induced from the usual path-integral approach. But the second includes Wotzasek's Wess-Zumino action coupled to the gauge fields.
