One of my favorite ways to celebrate is to go out and get chick fil a fries with chick fil a sauce and quad espressos from Starbucks.

I think it’s pretty fair to assume that if you are reading this post, you are as equally in love with Chick Fil A as I am!

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 Robbie 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.

How to make Chick Fil A Sauce

Add mayo, mustard, bbq sauce, and honey to a small bowl.


Mix the four ingredients well to combine.

whisking chick fil a sauce

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. 

Serve with your favorites!

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

chick fil a sauce mustard

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 old simple yellow mustard. 

barbecue sauce for chick fil a sauce recipe

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.

My daughter thought it needed a tad bit more mustard. But good! I like mayo and bbq sauce mixed together for my french fries.

Good recipe. I added a bit of sriracha and it is perfect.

This is pretty good but, if you add a little lemon juice, a little vinegar, and garlic powder it tastes even more like chick-fil-a.

This is probably fairly accurate to the original. I was an employee of the inventor of the recipe, Hugh Fleming. He discovered it in the mid 1980's in Spotsylvania VA. It was kind of discovered accidentally when sauces were inadvertently mixed together on a plate and someone dipped their nuggets in it. I am sure it was doctored after this, but as far as I know, it was sauces that we had on hand. Couldn't keep the fresh stuff in stock. It was flying out the fridge pretty much from Day 1. Many years later, Mr. Fleming gave it to corporate, who packaged it and rolled it out to all Chick Fil A's . The fresh stuff was even better though.

Made this before but this time didn’t have any mayo I substituted it with sour cream. It was just as good maybe even better! Used Kansas City BBQ sauce also…..
