Make your own Chick Fil A Sauce at home! This sauce is a cross between honey mustard and bbq sauce and is perfect for dipping fries or chicken.


All about this Chick Fil A Sauce…

  • Of course you can buy a large squeeze bottle of the sauce, but did you know it’s just as easy to make it at home?
  • It’s been said the secret of the sauce is that it is honey mustard mixed with coleslaw or ranch dressing. I have heard from employees though that it’s not ranch it’s the coleslaw dressing, which is very similar to this particular recipe. You can’t get closer unless you go to the restaurant yourself.



Notes on some ingredients:

  • Honey: this adds a hint of sweetness, the color of your honey will determine the coloring of your sauce.
  • Dijon/Yellow Mustard: both are used in this recipe.
  • Lemon: can be substituted with apple cider vinegar.
  • BBQ Sauce: use your favorite, a great option is Sweet Baby Rays.

How to make (step-by-step):

  • Step 1: combine the ingredients, add all ingredients to a bowl and stir or whisk together until well combined.
  • Step 2: chill, let the sauce rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before using.

Expert Tips:

  • Don’t grab a flavored, extra sweet BBQ sauce. Go with an Original flavor/style. This allows you to control the sweetness with the honey in the recipe.
  • Make a double batch so that you can keep some leftovers in the fridge.
  • If you want a smokier flavor try adding a drop of some liquid smoke in the recipe.
