The BEST Chicken Dipping Sauce

The BEST Chicken Dipping sauce tastes just like Chik-Fil-A sauce!

The Best Chicken Dipping Sauce is a copycat Chick-Fil-A Sauce recipe! It is PERFECT for dipping chicken nuggets, grilled chicken, or french fries!

We are OBSESSED with this chicken dipping sauce in our house. I make a double batch every week…which might seem like a lot, but we eat a ton of chicken recipes! I try to grill 2-3 pounds of chicken on Sunday so we have it made during the week to grab for lunch or a quick dinner. I always use the best chicken marinade recipe, and this dipping sauce is SO good with it! Actually it’s good on so many things beyond chicken too. It’s fantastic on burgers, with shrimp, or anything you would use ketchup on! Even spread it on sandwiches and it is amazing! It’s a completely versatile dipping sauce, that I know you will love as much as we do!

This recipe is actually my spin on Chick-Fil-A Sauce

Like many people, we love Chick-Fil-A nuggets and sauce, but since we *try* to limit the amount of fast food we eat, I decided to try my hand at the sauce at home, because we love it just as much (if not more) on GRILLED chicken!

If you’ve never had Chick-Fil-A sauce it’s a creamy, slightly smoky, sweet sauce with a little tang, There are tons of recipes on the internet for this sauce, and I’ve tried a few, but I tweaked the ingredients a little bit and we love it even more than the original! I’ve even heard that Wal-Mart now carries a version of the sauce, but it’s never in stock around me, it sells out so fast!

Hi Shelly! I very seldom, if ever, leave reviews; however, this particular recipe is most definitely review worthy. My family loves it. We are making homemade chicken tenders just for the sauce. Thanks for the deliciousness.

I used hickory brown sugar baby rays and honestly this reminds me of Chick-Fil-A sauce. But better!!!! Thank you so much!

So, this really is the best. My family of 9 couldn’t get enough—to the point that when the chicken was gone, we ate more baby carrots and cucumber slices so we could eat more sauce. Even my pickier than picky 2 yr old was loving it. Thank you so much!!!

This is seriously the BEST sauce in all the land. My family loves it! We used a honey BBQ sauce from Aldi’s and it is pure perfection.

This was seriously sooooo good! I made your amazing marinade for the chicken, and then dipped it in this sauce. It was a winner with my husband and three boys! My seven year old said it tasted better than Chick-fil-A sauce!

Can I sub something else for the dijon mustard? I don’t usually have that on hand.

what type of bbq sauce do you typically use? We’re usually a sweet baby rays family, but there are so many variations to bbq sauces!!
