Chick-fil-A Sauce (copycat recipe)


Chick-fil-A sauce is the BEST dipping sauce! This copycat recipe is spot on and perfect for dipping nuggets, fries, or topping burgers and sandwiches!

Chick-fil-A is one of the largest fast food chains in the United States, and their recipes all are highly coveted. My favorite item at Chick-fil-A is their Chick-fil-A sauce and waffle fries; it’s the perfect combination. Use this sauce to dip chicken strips, french fries, asparagus fries, air fryer fried pickles, or curly fries; or spread it on top of an air fryer hamburger! You just can’t go wrong with this delicious sauce!

There are tons of copycat recipes out there for this sauce, but I found putting the basic ingredients together, and then tweaking them a bit to produce the most authentic copycat Chick-fil-A sauce. The best part is, it’s likely you already have all the ingredients in your fridge or pantry! I have already shared some amazing copycat sauces with y’all such as ZAX SAUCE and OUTBACK BLOOM SAUCE AND ONION PETALS!

How to make Chick-fil-A Sauce:

  • Get all the ingredients together – Mayo, honey, mustard, BBQ sauce, and lemon juice – that’s it (scroll down for exact measurements)
  • Whisk everything in a bowl until completely combined and there are no clumps. Make sure to scrape the bottom and sides to incorporate all the honey.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (even better over night) to thicken the Chick-fil-A Sauce, and let all the ingredients meld together.
  • Serve with your favorite dippers such as french fries, air fryer green bean fries, Zesty Chicken Tenders, or Walnut Honey Mustard Chicken Strips.

How to lighten up Chick-fil-A Sauce:

While this sauce is delicious, it is not diet friendly. To decrease calories and fat, replace whole fat mayonnaise for low fat mayonnaise and you won’t be able to taste a difference. This will cut the calories in half (37 calories instead of 76 calories) and reduce the fat content drastically (2g fat compared to 7g fat).
