Tips and tricks
When you are ready to make the best sauce, check out these tips and tricks:
- Use maple syrup instead of honey for a vegan version.
- If serving a lot of people, double the batch.
- Store only sauce that has not touched other food to preserve freshness.
- Experiment with your favorite BBQ sauces to see which one works best for you.
Is this sauce vegan?
As is, the sauce contains honey, which is not vegan. If you want to make it vegan, you can substitute maple syrup for the honey and use a vegan mayonnaise. This will alter the taste slightly, but it should still be pretty close to the original flavor.
Where can I find the ingredients?
Depending on your store, you should be able to find most of the ingredients in the same aisle where condiments are sold. The mustards, mayo, and even BBQ sauce should be close by each other.
The honey may be in a different aisle or it may also be near the other condiments.
For the lemon juice, you can use bottled or fresh. Fresh gives it a slightly fresher taste.

Can you substitute ingredients?
When you make substitutions, it can change the flavor slightly, so keep that in mind.
You could substitute maple syrup for the honey to make this vegan. But we don’t recommend changing too much or you’ll alter the flavor and it won’t taste like the original Chic Fil A sauce.
For the BBQ sauce, you can play around a bit with the flavor you like. A smokey BBQ sauce will add more of a smokey flavor, while a hotter or sweeter sauce will add spice or sweetness respectively.
We strongly recommend using regular mayo for the richness, but you could use low fat if you prefer.
How to store this sauce
Whether you have left overs or just make a large batch, you can store untouched sauce in the fridge in an airtight container. Any sauce you used for dipping, you should discard. It can spoil quickly if other foods touch the sauce.
How long will it last?
If you store the sauce in an air tight container in the fridge, it should last about 10 days. Keep in mind, the shelf life is shorter than the sauce you can get at the restaurant because it does not contain preservatives.
