The Ingredients to Use
When making the Copycat Chick Fil A Sauce, you will only need a handful of ingredients, including:
Mayo. Use ¼ cup of any mayo that you have in your refrigerator. The brand does not matter.
Clover Honey. The honey adds a slightly sweet touch to the condiment that gives it its signature taste.
Yellow Mustard. Add just a bit of yellow mustard to give your sauce its color with additional flavor.
BBQ Sauce. Like the mayo, you can use any brand. It is best to use traditional BBQ sauce instead of using one with extra ingredients simply because you do not want to alter the flavor of this sauce.
The only other ingredients you will need to prepare this sauce are lemon juice and dijon mustard.
How to Make Chick Fil A Sauce
Making the Copycat Chick Fil A Sauce is as easy as it gets. Combine your mayo, honey, yellow mustard, BBQ sauce, dijon mustard, and lemon juice in a bowl. Once you have all your ingredients together, whisk well until thoroughly combined. You will notice that you have mixed the ingredients well enough when the color of the sauce looks similar to the original Chick FIl A dipping sauce. Place it in a container and put it in the fridge to chill before serving it.
How to Store the Sauce
Pour the contents of your mixing bowl into a plastic or glass container. If you have a squeeze bottle, you can store the sauce in that bottle to make it easy for you to add sauce to some of your favorite foods. You can use an old ketchup or mustard bottle, thoroughly rinsing it out before pouring your sauce into it. Be sure to label the container you use before storing your sauce in the fridge. It should stay fresh when in the fridge for up to two months.
