I grew up in the South (East Tennessee, to be exact), and therefore, I grew up with Chick-Fil-A. I have even been to the original restaurant! Their signature sauce is so delicious - it is the perfect accompaniment to their amazing chicken tenders. The creamy, sweet, and smoky flavors are perfect! I love Chick-Fil-A, not just because of their amazing food, but because of their Biblical stand on so many issues. I believe the Lord has blessed them because of their commitment to Biblical principles.
Unfortunately, when I moved to Montana, I found there was no Chick-Fil-A. One did open up about two hours north of me, but I have not been able to go yet. Anyway, when we made Restaurant Style Breaded Chicken Tenders a couple of weeks ago for supper, I whipped up this sauce for dipping. I was so pleased with the results - it really does taste like the Chick-Fil-A sauce! This sauce is low carb, and is completely THM compliant! You are going to love it!
So, what do you need for this amazing sauce?
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
2-3 Teaspoons Liquid Smoke
1 "doonk" Powdered Stevia Extract (a "doonk" is 1/32 of a teaspoon)
Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy!

I have to try this! I love Chic fil a. I'm in east TN! Small world 🙂
How cool is that! East TN is still "home" to me. 🙂
You have no idea how happy this makes me! We rely on Chick-Fil-A for lunch or dinner at LEAST once a week and I always let myself having some CFA sauce even though I know it's filled with sugar and other not so great stuff. I can't wait to try making this!!!
Yes, 2-3 teaspoons is correct. If that seems like a lot, begin with the 2 teaspoons and taste. You can always add more if you feel it needs it! 🙂
Thanks for the Gentle Sweet Conversion, that’s what I have and can’t wait to make this now!,
This sauce is so freaking good! Thank-you so much! The chicken tenders were amazing too! I'm fixing this at least once a week! Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you!
Yay! I'm so glad you enjoy them! They are a favorite in my family, too!
I made extra to eat for my lunch and dinner today! When I watch my 4 month old grandson it's hard to make lunch so I made extra and they are really good cold out of the fridge! Love that sauce! I have him for 12 hours today so I needed lunch and dinner! Someday he will get to eat these too! Hugs!
I liked the sauce from chic filet. Want to try this sometime.
I just made this with sour cream because I hate mayonnaise, and it's delicious! I can't wait to try it with your chicken strips in a little while! I also used 2 tsp of gentle sweet in place of the stevia.
This was really close to CFA sauce even w/o the onion powder I've run out of. The chicken was very good too. Thanks for sharing!
Looks delicious! How long will this keep in the fridge?
It should keep as long as mayonnaise would keep, so a good while! 🙂
This is Ok but if you want a sauce that is really like the original Chick Fil-A sauce all you need is a good barbq sauce, I use Baby Ray's some honey mustard and mayo almost equal parts , I use slightly more mayo. Yes it's as simple as that only three items. Neat and Sweet!
But this is a low carb/sugar- free recipe, so store-bought sauce would not work for most of the folks that follow this blog.
Can you give me the recipe. How much of each. I can't use the stevia. Your recipe sounds better. Thank you
I’ve been making the same copycat chick-fil-a sauce recipe for years, and I just decided to make yours today on a whim. SO SO good! It comes very close to th original, and this will be my go-to recipe from now on. Thank you!!
Can't wait to try this! One question do I use yellow hot dog mustard or ground yellow mustard? Thanks!
I usually use yellow hot dog mustard.
Made this to go with dinner tonight and it was delicious. Made chicken nuggets using the macho nacho seasoning that I had leftover in my cabinet from a past recipe and wanted to use up. So yummy!
Mmmm . . . that sounds fantastic!
When I first used your baking mix as a breading, I added onion powder and garlic salt, and I added Romano cheese -the shaker type, 2-3 tablespoons to a cup of baking mix. It adds a nice mild flavor! I love being able to have chicken tenders occasionally! So yummy!!!

My neighbor's dad invented the Chic-Fil-a sauce. I must tell him. He'd be happy to hear about it.
Truly? That is cool! Please tell him thank-you! (That stuff is delicious!)
THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!!! My 7 year old and husband approved it as good as the real thing! My husband who tries his best to follow a Keto diet is especially psyched.
We didn't have powdered stevia extract on hand, so instead used 5 drops of the liquid NuStevia extract, with excellent results. Thanks so much for sharing! This is going in our favorite healthier recipes box 😉
We love this recipe...on any sandwich in place of mayo, or even on the chicken tenders. Thanks!
Easy to fix and was yummy!
This recipe is delicious however I added 1 T each of honey and baby rays BBQ sauce and about half the amount of liquid smoke

Best copy cat! Made exactly except used liquid stevia and did half garlic powder and 1/2 pink salt for garlic salt (what I had in pantry) and added a little Tabasco... very good and very close. So happy to find this one...
I'm so glad you liked it!
These recipe was awesome!!! It truly tastes like Chick-Fil-A sauce but without the guilt!! Thank you for sharing!! We ate it with the chicken tenders from Trim Healthy Table. Very delicious!!
