This 2-ingredient vegan chick-fil-a sauce will be the easiest dipping sauce you ever make! Once you put together this super simple dipping sauce recipe, no other will compare.

You will Love this Recipe
- It's full of flavor. If you've never tried Chick-fil-A's signature sauce, it is like a super creamy hybrid of barbecue and honey mustard sauce. It is the perfect smoky, savory, sweet, and acidic combo. This homemade vegan version tastes just like the real deal.
- It's ridiculously easy. Not many vegan sauces are quite this simple. You can't get much easier than combining just two ingredients!
- It's suitable for a vegan diet. Using vegan-friendly options, this super tasty sauce can be the perfect dip for your tofu nuggets or fries, but most likely both.
Ingredients and Substitutions
- Mustard-style barbecue sauce: It's important that your bbq sauce is mustard style, also sometimes called golden barbecue or Carolina mustard style, to give the sweet yet slightly bitter flavor of mustard to this sauce. I use Heinz brand Carolina Mustard BBQ. If you are using a different brand, double-check that it meets your dietary preferences/needs.
- Vegan Mayonnaise adds creaminess without using animal products. There are plenty of brands to choose from, or you can make your own. Of course, regular mayonnaise will work just fine too!
To make this copycat recipe, simply add vegan mayo and barbecue sauce to a small mixing bowl. Use a long-stem fork or other utensil to stir until the mixture is a uniform light mustard color.
Then, use your new vegan dip with your vegan chicken creation, waffle fries, or any other fast-food-inspired foods you've cooked up. Pair with my tofu nugget recipe for a totally satisfying Chick-fil-A-inspired meal!
Chick-fil-a inspired salad dressing: Add one tablespoon of white wine vinegar to this recipe to make it into a drizzle-able vegan-friendly dressing! I love to make a salad with cold noodles, vegan chicken nuggets, lettuce, and this dressing. Sounds weird, but I promise it's delish!
Spicy chick-fil-a sauce: Try adding some of your favorite hot sauce if you prefer your dipping sauce to have a kick! I bet this sauce would be so yummy to toss my tofu wings in!
Store this sauce in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator to be safe.
- Easily adapt this recipe for how much you need by using between one and two parts barbecue to one part mayo.
- If you are not sure what kind of barbecue sauce it is from the label, the sauce should be a bit yellow in color and have yellow mustard and tomato in the ingredient list.
- If you cannot find a mustard-style barbecue locally, try making it! Mad about Food's Carolina Gold BBQ with a yellow mustard, pineapple juice, and tomato paste base sounds like a great one to try!
Chick-Fil-A is a fast-food chain in the United States known for its fried chicken, specifically its famous chicken sandwiches and signature sauce. Unfortunately, there are not many vegan or gluten-free options among its menu items.
Nope. Chick-Fil-A's signature sauce contains eggs.
2 Ingredient Chick-fil-A Sauce (Copycat)
- ⅓ cup mustard-style barbecue sauce (check it is vegan if need be)
- ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise (or regular mayonnaise for non-vegan)
- In a small bowl using a long-stem form or other mixing utensil, stir together the barbecue sauce and mayonnaise.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
- If you are unsure of the type of barbecue, look in the ingredients list for yellow mustard and tomato (paste, sauce, etc.).
- Some mustard-style barbecues will not be vegan (usually because they use honey as a sweetener).
