When it comes to fast food, Chick-fil-A ranks at the top of the list for my kids.I don't mind at all because I really love it, too. The chicken is admittedly delicious but, so are the variety of sauces they offer. This Copycat Chick-fil-A Sauce is one of our faves and it's delicious for dipping chicken as well as serving as a yummy fry sauce, too.
Copycat Chick-fil-A Sauce
Half of the fun each time we stop in for a quick bite to eat, is picking out which sauces to dip our chicken into for the best flavor explosion. Chick-fil-A sauce is generally the family pick closely followed by honey mustard and Polynesian. One of my sons loves this sauce so much on a recent visit he said, "I wish we could have this at home." Well, that's all it took. Surely, I could come up with a very close homemade Chick-fil-A sauce for us to enjoy. So after quite a bit of experimenting I came up with this, and made my sons very very happy chicken nugget eating campers.
Chill Thoroughly For the Best Results
As with any sauce, this sauce needs to sit to allow the flavors to come together so make it at least 8 hours in advance. I store it in a mason jar in my fridge and tend to make it in batches small enough not to have tons left over for a long period of time. To date this has not been an issue it's usually polished off with ease. Keep in mind, the amount of smokiness can vary according to which brand of barbecue sauce you use. A drop or two of liquid smoke can also give it a smoky flavor punch if you have some on hand. We use this sauce on burgers, grilled chicken, steak, shrimp, for dipping french fries, onion rings, veggies and more. Other sauces you may enjoy is my Avocado lime Ranch Dressing and Copycat Chick-fil-A Honey Mustard from My Recipes.
