The iconic creamy, tangy Chick Fil A sauce is easily made at home using just six common ingredients. You’re going to put this sauce on everything!
I love how the order takers at Chick-fil-A ask you how many Chick-Fil-A sauces you want with your waffle fries and chicken nuggets. The fact that they ask takes away any potential embarrassment of asking for extra!
There’s no need to be embarrassed though, Chick Fil A Sauce is one of the most delicious dips ever, and we all order extra sauce!
Now, imagine if you could whip up a big batch of Chick-Fil-A sauce in your own kitchen in less than 5 minutes. You can, and I’m showing you how.

Here’s what you need to make this yummy and spot-on copycat Chick-Fil-A sauce.
Complete list of ingredients and amounts can be found in the recipe card below.
- Mayonnaise: This is the base of the dipping sauce and makes it creamy and thick. Try my 5-minute homemade mayonnaise, it’s so easy to make and tastes much better than the store-bought stuff!
- BBQ Sauce: Use your favorite type. BBQ sauce adds sweet, tangy, and smoky flavor to the sauce.
- Yellow Mustard: Don’t try to use other types of mustards. Yellow mustard is what gives this sauce it’s warm color.
- Honey: Chick-Fil-A Sauce is sort of like an amped up honey mustard sauce. You can substitute with agave if you’re needing to make this recipe vegan.
- Lemon Juice: This acidic ingredient helps to balance out the sweet and rich flavors.
- Salt: Just a bit is needed. You can adjust to suit your preference too.

Homemade Sauces to Make at Home
I suggest using a bottled BBQ sauce that has a balance of sweet and tangy flavors. Look for “original” flavor on the label. Avoid using honey bbq or spicy bbq sauces. Whatever flavors are in the BBQ will come through in your finished sauce.
Sure! This recipe makes about a cup of sauce, which is enough to make six servings that are 2-3 tablespoons. If you’re mixing this up for 1 or 2 people, you can cut the recipe in half. You can also double it if you really like Chick-Fil-A Sauce!
Nope. Regular yellow mustard is a must for this recipe! Other styles of mustard won’t give you the same warmth and color.
