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

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!

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!

Super Easy Chicken Dipping Sauce

What IS Chick Fil A Sauce?

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! And now they’re even packaging it and selling it, which is amazing, but my version is MUCH cheaper and equally pretty spot on!


This chicken sauce recipe is SO easy and is only 4-ish ingredients you probably have in your pantry right now!

You need:

  • Mayo
  • BBQ Sauce (I always use Sweet Baby Rays)
  • Honey
  • Mustard & Dijon Mustard

Just mix the ingredients together and you’re all set!

How Long Will This Last?

This will be good stored airtight in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  1. Hi, I’m in the UK, our Yellow Mustard is hot and fiery, good for clearing sinuses, is yours the bland, tasteless, yellow stuff I sampled in America ?

    1. Our yellow mustard isn’t hot at all! Nor is it bland or tasteless! Try buying a bottle of French’s Mustard from Amazon. It’s our #1 selling mustard in the United States. If you want sinus clearing out mustard add some horseradish to it!

    2. Marie Gauthier

      Yes, the yellow mustard available in America is indeed bland and tasteless. Skip it, and add more Dijon.

  2. I made this sauce tonight to serve with air fried chicken tenders. I usually make a recipe exactly as written the first time but because I do not eat sugar, I subbed the honey with sugar free honey and sweet baby rays sugar free bbq sauce. I did not add any other sweetener and it was just right.
    I had friends over and did not tell them at first that it was no sugar. I had to make a second batch before it was over. Everyone loved it. Me too. I am thinking that I might use it as a salad dressing or a sandwich or wrap spread. I have never been to a chick-fil-a so I can not compare it. Thanks for the recipe. I will make it over and over again.

  3. This dipping sauce is absolutely delicious! This is definitely a keeper. We also tried hot dijon mustard and loved it.

  4. I made this sauce for dinner tonight and everyone loved it! My daughter was licking her plate so she could get all the sauce off and my husband even commented about how good it was which he rarely does. I can’t wait to try it with your marinade to next time. Because there definitely will be a next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

  5. This is serious! Best tasting sauce and it totally reminds me of Chick-Fil-A. Thanks a lot for sharing!!
