Copycat Chick-fil-A Sauce

Filed Under:

Share This:

Here’s the thing about fast food and “junk” food: they are designed to be highly delicious. We love them and our kids love them, too, especially Chick-fil-A sauce. We all have a special weakness for the stuff. Meghan has spent the last couple of years perfecting her recipe, and our episode Should We Stop Talking About “Junk” Food was the perfect time to unveil her version.

Please ignore any copycat Chick-fil-A sauce recipes that call for BBQ sauce: we’ve discovered that there’s too much variation in sweetness and acidity in store-bought BBQ sauces to reliably come up with a Chick-fil-A sauce that tastes like the original. Instead, follow our lead and use ketchup, liquid smoke, and sugar to get that signature smoky flavor.
