Chick-Fil-A Copycat Sauce Recipe, Noreen's Kitchen

We ran up to the local Chik-Fil-a to pick up some of their delicious nuggets to try in our homemade sauces and we did a comparison with their versions.  We were pleasantly surprised at how close our versions were.  

I hope you give these copycat versions of Chick-Fil-A and Polynesian sauce a try the next time you want to dip your homemade nuggets and I hope you love them!

Happy Eating!

The sauce starts with mayonnaise, plain yellow or prepared mustard, honey and then the magic, lemon juice and barbecue sauce.  That's it!  My homemade version, when compared to theirs was less smoky, and a little darker, but things being what they are, this was a very close match.  I could add a drop or two of liquid smoke or even a tablespoon more of barbecue sauce to up that flavor.  The best part is that you can adjust this to suit your taste!  It was delicious and even my girls said it was very good.

For each sauce, combine the listed ingredients in a small bowl and mix well to incorporate.  Store in a container with a tight-fitting lid.

Stored in the refrigerator, these should last up to 3 weeks.

 
                                             Enjoy!

Hi!  I'm Noreen, wife, mother of two amazing, almost grown, daughters, content creator, cook, baker and sister in Christ. Welcome to my Kitchen!   I hope you stick around, enjoy the recipes and share them with those you love!

Today I am sharing a copycat version of my family's two favorite Chik-Fil-A dipping sauces.  Because sometimes sauce is life, and you just gotta have it, these two will see you through.  Chik-Fil-A Sauce is a delicious combination of honey mustard and barbecue sauce and the Polynesian sauce, my personal favorite, is a delicious version of sweet and sour sauce.  We are fans of Chik-Fil-A for so many reasons, but the chicken, mostly, and those waffle fries!  Don't even get me started.  Sometimes, you want those sauces to dip your homemade nuggets into and just don't have one of those little cups left in your fridge.  Today I am here to share with you how easy it is to make these delicious dippers on your own, with a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and pantry!


​First we can start with the namesake sauce.  This is a sauce I did not even know about until educated properly by my then 13 year old who requested extra.  I had no idea.  If you don't know about "Chick-Fil-A Sauce", do yourself a favor the next time you are in that line and ask for some to dip your nuggets or your fries and you will thank me.  Don't have a Chick-Fil-A near you?  No worries, the recipe is easy!  This is glorified honey mustard.  It was originally an accident concocted at one of their restaurants when an employee accidentally mixed the honey mustard and the barbecue sauce.  In the end it was a serendipitous event.  



Chick-Fil-A Copycat Sauces

The Polynesian sauce is just as easy as the first.  I started with good quality Catalina or French salad dressing, added honey, pineapple juice and yellow mustard.  Boom!  This tasted very close to the original even if it looked a bit different.  Rick said it tasted almost identical.  Not too shabby for mixing things up from the fridge.   I always have pineapple juice in my fridge because I drink it every morning.  If you don't have it on hand you could try some orange juice or the next time you are at the store pick up some of those little cans of pineapple juice to keep in your pantry for when you want to mix this up.
