  1. This is absolutely amazing!! However chickfila sauce and honey roasted barbecue are two different sauces!

    1. Merrideth- you know your chick fil a sauces. You know how they’re similar? This one is probably closest to actual chick fil a sauce (the descriptors or just there for those not quite so acquainted with chick fil a). 😉

    1. If we had a chickfila close by, we’d make multiple trips. 😉 But this will do in a pinch… 😉

  2. Thank you!
    We left the USA two years ago and really miss Chick Fil A. I have made the chicken with another recipe and found the crinkle cut chips at Costco and your sauce is the finishing touch!

  3. Spot on! As a Southern, raised on Chik fi la, I’m addicted to these sauces. I added a tablespoon of hot mustard to your mix for a bit more kick.

    1. I love this Elizabeth! I am back in the land of ChickFilA (so lucky) and don’t make my own nearly as often anymore, but I love your suggestion of adding hot mustard! 😉

  4. Wow!! Dead on the same.
    I did not use white pepper (did not have any) but black pepper worked fine. Will save this one.
    Saw other recipes that had a lot of ingredients and seemed like a pain to make. This one was simple and taste great. I halved the recipe though.

    1. Glad it worked, Scott! We are living overseas again with no access to ChickFilA and I need to start making this recipe again. 😉
