Are there really people who exist that DO NOT like Chick Fil A? I don’t think that’s possible.  I used to always dip my fries in ketchup, but one time my husband convinced me to try Chick Fil A Sauce, and it was all over after that.

It was so good that it ruined ketchup for me! If you love chick fil a sauce, you’re going to love this.

It is only four ingredients and ridiculously simple. I swear, it tastes identical to the real thing.

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! 

Now we don’t have to walk in to Chick Fil-A stealing handfuls of their sauces! Delicious! – Kali

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.

Looking for alternatives for the BBQ sauce as I'm allergic to tomatoes.

@Jennifer, there's a brand called KC Natural that makes tomato free products and their BBQ sauce is very good.

I live in Central America and have been craving Chick Fil A for months. I can make good chicken but the sauce has been lacking. I made this tonight with my own chicken nuggets and it was amazing. I did add a few shakes of salt and pepper and a touch of vinegar since my BBQ sauce didn't have much in it. I could close my eyes and see myself sitting with my mom back home at lunch.

How do you thicken it? It tastes just like chick fil a sauce but is so runny. It needs a thickener of some sort.
