Chick-fil-A-Sauce is one of my favorite copycat recipes. It is made with basic ingredients that you may just already have on hand. Also, what is even more convenient is how simple it is to prepare it. Once you have the ingredients ready, simply whisk them together, and you are done.
I tried to stick to the original Chick-Fil-A restaurant flavors, and use only a handful of ingredients. It has a nice tangy and sweet flavor, with just a hint of lemon. In addition, the texture nice is creamy, and it tastes just like the real deal!
Making it at home is also budget-friendly, and you can make a larger batch for later use. Simply refrigerate it in a mason jar, and you enjoy it up to 10 days.

- Then, place the bowl in the refrigerator, and let it refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to combine.
- Enjoy it with your favorite chicken tenders, nuggets, sandwich, and french fries!
What type of mustard do you use for chick fil a sauce?
I use regular yellow mustard in combination with dijon mustard. This makes the sauce more flavorful, and it gives it a hint of spiciness. However, if you want a more mild flavor, simply skip the dijon mustard.
What kind of barbecue sauce is best to use?
For this recipe, I love using my original homemade bbq sauce. It has the right balance of sweet, salty, and spicy taste. Also, by making it yourself, you know exactly what goes into it.
Alternatively, you could use a store-bought type, or use your favorite brand. Just keep in mind, if you go with a sweet version, you will have to reduce the honey.

More delicious sauces:
- Feel free to adjust the flavors based on your preference. So, if you like it smokier, use some liquid smoke.
- Any type of mayo will work just great. You can even use vegan mayo.
- Also, additional spices can be added, such as paprika, garlic powder, or onion powder.
- Similarly, any honey type will work. But if you are looking for a milder taste, go with wildflower honey.
