This simple Chick Fil A Sauce is just like what you get at your favorite restaurant. Put it on your favorite chicken sandwiches or just use it for dipping fries!

I am sort of obsessed with making condiment recipes for you. I love how a simple little sauce or dressing can completely change a recipe.

This is, again, true with this great Chick Fil A Sauce and Grilled Chicken Sandwiches. Those sandwiches are good on their own. But this sauce takes them over the top.

Nathan loves Chick Fil A so much that they know his name there. I’m not kidding. And occasionally I go with him and I always grab several packets of the Honey BBQ Sauce. It is so delicious and puts fries and the chicken sandwich over the top.

This Homemade Chick Fil A Sauce is just like what you get there. Even Nathan thinks so – quite the endorsement.

What is Chick Fil A Sauce

Chick Fil A Sauce is a really simple recipe that combines honey, BBQ sauce and mayonnaise. It makes a wonderful dipping sauce or sandwich spread.

Chick Fil A Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce Ingrdients

Only a few simple pantry ingredients to make this recipe! In lieu of BBQ Sauce, we are adding a few of the key ingredients to my homemade BBQ Sauce.

For the full list of amounts be sure to read the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  • Mayonnaise
  • Honey
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Ketchup
  • Lemon Juice
  • Brown Sugar
  • Apple Cider Vinegar

If you don’t have any apple cider vinegar, you can use white vinegar. But, I will suggest you buy a bottle of apple cider vinegar; it adds such a wonderful tang to this and many other recipes – like my Bourbon Chicken.

How to Make Chick Fil A Sauce

The best part about this recipe is that it is just whisking it together. There is no need to heat it up or let it simmer like with my traditional BBQ Sauce.

How to Use Honey BBQ Sauce

Like any great condiment, there are a lot of different uses for this recipe.

How Long Does it Last

This copycat Chick Fil A Sauce can store in an airtight container for up to four weeks in your refrigerator.

That said, I can’t express enough that you should use your best judgement. If you inadvertently used an ingredient that wasn’t fresh, or was close to it’s expiration date, that storage time could be shortened.

Please use your best judgement. If it smells or looks off, in other words, different from how it was when you first made it, toss it.

Can You Freeze It

Because of the mayonnaise in this recipe, I would not recommend freezing it.

    Can’t wait to try.

  2. Ginger says

    Can you can this sauce in a canner, would it be shelf stable??

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Ginger! I don’t have enough experience with canning to answer this, but I would suspect no because of the mayonnaise.

  3. Bobbie says

    Can this be canned?
    Thx

    • Lisa Longley says

      I would be concerned with some of the ingredients in this when it comes to canning.

  4. CHRISTINE says

    Looking forward to some great ideas.

  5. Dorothy Free says

    I do alot of canning and I was wondering if this can be canned

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Dorothy! I don’t have enough experience with canning to answer this. I am going to refer you to the USDA’s resource on canning and what to watch out for.

  6. Kimberly Starkey says

    What kind of Mayonnaise do you ise?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Just use whatever Mayonnaise brand you like best. You can even use light mayo. Just be sure it is Mayonnaise and not Miracle Whip as those those are not the same flavor.

    Phenomenal! I put it on everything possible!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so happy you like it!

  8. Nicole says

    This is very close. It needs a hickory BBQ sauce instead of ketchup and it also needs distilled vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar…as these are the actual ingredients on the Chick-Fil-A packaging. I will experiment with these and see if that gets it.

    We needed some good sauce a couple of weeks ago. I found this recipe and decided to try it. A winner for sure at our house, especially with three teenagers who are addicted to Chick Fil A.
