Chick-fil-A Sauce is an easy dipping sauce is slightly smoky with a hint of honey mustard that is perfect for dipping waffle fries, nuggets and more.
Chick-fil-A Sauce is a recipe that was actually pretty easy to find a copycat recipe for. I found the version I worked off of from Copykat Recipes and did a bit of tweaking to the ingredients. Since almost all the recipes online are the same group of ingredients I think we’re all pretty close to the same flavors, but I found that the actual sauce was a bit smokier than the recipe made.
If you’re having trouble getting that smoke flavor you can add a small splash of liquid smoke (if there was a way to do a pinch of a liquid thats literally how small of an amount I mean).
Then you can enjoy this dipping sauce with your favorite Chick-fil-A Nuggets and Chick-Fil-A Crispy Chicken Sandwich and Lemonade.
What kind of sauce does Chick Fil A have? They actually have seven different dipping sauces but the Chick-fil-A Sauce and the Polynesian Sauce are my two favorites (and their most popular). Chick-fil-A Polynesian Sauce is a slightly muted sweet and sour sauce, not like a Chinese takeout place, but more like the packets of sweet and sour that are tangier and darker in color.
What does Chick-fil-A Sauce taste like? Like a mixture or honey mustard, barbecue sauce and mayonnaise mixed with a bit of smoke and yellow mustard. Its a tangier honey mustard creamy bbq sauce.
If you’re looking for another fry sauce, I also have a copycat In-n-Out Spread Sauce which is a spot on copy!
Tools Used in the making of this Chick-fil-A Sauce:
Barbecue Sauce: I find this flavor to be pretty close, if you want smokier, I’d suggest this smoky flavored sauce or using a bit of liquid smoke.
Dijon Mustard: Great, more muted flavor that works well in sauces and for cooking (especially with pork).
Honey: The best deal on honey you’re going to find online that you know for sure is real honey, only $4 a pound. Or buy it in the store for even less!
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow flavors to come together.
- If your sauce doesn’t have that hint of smoke (in case your bbq sauce is sweeter rather than smoky) use a splash of liquid smoke.
