How to make Chick Fil A Sauce

  1. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, barbecue sauce, and honey to a small bowl.
  2. Whisk the four ingredients well to combine and serve

I have found that using a whisk results in the perfect creaminess and lets the mayo combine completely into the sauce. Sometimes a spoon won’t be able to mix it quite as well.

It’s really that easy. No fancy ingredients. Probably all stuff that you already have on hand!

Chick Fil A Sauce FAQs

What kind of mustard do you use for chick fil a sauce? 

For this recipe, you want regular yellow mustard. Do not use dijon or other spicy mustards as the flavor will not be the same. Just plain regular yellow mustard. 

What kind of barbecue sauce do you use?

Use your favorite regular barbecue sauce brand. I do not recommend using honey bbq or other sweeter sauces as the chick fil a sauce may taste too sweet. The honey already adds the sweetness that we need without being too much. 

What kind of mayo do you use?

Any regular mayo will work. Again, we want the basic mayo here, not spicy mayo, or any other “different” types of mayo. Just classic white mayonnaise.

This recipe came in clutch. I had just microwaved myself a plate of chicken nuggies, and went to the fridge for some of my favorite chick fil a sauce. But disaster! The bottle is empty! In a panicked flurry, I looked up a recipe online. This came up first. I was able to enjoy my nuggies with your sauce before they became cold. I thank you with all my heart. You have saved my nuggies.

It's an honor to save your nuggies! So glad you enjoyed the recipe!

If you use a honey barbequ and no honey it still gets the job done. It takes the same as Chich-fil-A sauce!

I added a bit of Accent and black pepper, and it tastes *exactly* like Chick-fil-A sauce. I told my brother to try it, and he agreed, he hates agreeing with me lol.
