Surprise: All the ingredients can be found in your kitchen pantry—barbecue, ranch, and honey mustard. (*)
Here’s what we discovered: Because of the combination of sauces that it contains, the Chick Fil A sauce is not just for chicken! It works well with a lot of other dishes as well.
So what to eat with Chick Fil A sauce?
Because of how much we love the famous Chick Fil A sauce, we’ve already tried it with almost all food items imaginable—from main dishes to appetizers and so much more!
Here are the top pairings on our list:
1. Fried Chicken/ Chicken Nuggets/ Chicken Tenders
Of course, this sauce is best paired with any crispy chicken dish: chicken tenders, chicken nuggets, fried chicken, and many more.
This saucy, tangy, and creamy sauce takes the crispy and juicy chicken to a whole new level.
2. Potato Side Dishes
Chick Fil A Sauce is also an excellent dip for French fries. It adds an unexpected flavor that makes fries more delicious and enjoyable.
- Pro Tip: Aside from French fries, you can also enjoy dipping fried potato dishes, like hash browns and tater tots, in this sauce.
3. Veggie Sticks
Surprise! Chick Fil A sauce is not just for deep-fried foods! It pairs well with healthy snacks like veggie sticks.
Try snacking on veggie sticks like sliced cucumbers, carrots, and bell peppers if you’re trying to eat healthily. Then, try dipping these sticks into Chick Fil A original sauce for a punch of flavor. It will undoubtedly take your snacking adventure to a whole new level.
Another healthy pairing would be veggie salad. If you don’t have a salad dressing available at home, you can always use Chick Fil A sauce as a vegetable salad dressing. This would go well with a bed of lettuce, sliced tomatoes, croutons, chicken slices, boiled eggs, and cucumbers.
- Pro Tip: You can even use it as a marinade for your chicken slices before roasting or air frying them.
One of our favorite comfort foods is quesadillas. But, to be honest, this dish already has a complete flavor profile with its cheese, meat, and veggies content.
But let’s face it—this dish is definitely made to be dipped in sauce. So while sour cream is the go-to sauce for quesadillas, we found Chick Fil A sauce to be a worthy substitute.
This seems pretty obvious already. Barbecue sauce works well for burgers. Honey mustard is a popular burger condiment too. So why not try using Chick Fil A sauce in your burger?
It has all the flavors of barbecue sauce and honey mustard plus more! What else can you ask for?
- Pro Tip: Add smoked bacon to your burger for a truly sinful yet satisfying treat.
Of course, you must try this on a breaded chicken sandwich. How can you not?
But aside from chicken sandwiches, Chick Fil A sauce also tastes fantastic when used in other types of sandwiches.
One of our best recommendations would be a breakfast sandwich with ham, bacon, eggs, and cheese.
8. Chips or Crackers
Do you love cheese and crackers but find it to be a bit boring at times? If so, bring back life to your favorite snacks by serving them with Chick Fil A sauce on the side.
With its sweet and tangy taste, it’s the best dip when balancing the cracker’s or chips’ saltiness.
9. Breakfast Food
Do you love eating breakfast? We do too! The best news is Chick Fil A sauce works on almost all breakfast food items.
One, in particular, is eggs. If you love experimenting with eggs, we suggest making an omelet with bacon, ham, cheese, and vegetables of your choice. Drizzle the sauce on top and be amazed at how tasty it is.
Another fantastic idea would be to make breakfast tacos. All you need is tortilla wraps, fluffy eggs, bacon bits, and cheese to do this. Again, go for this sauce instead of mayonnaise or ketchup.
This may be an unpopular opinion, but pizza tastes good when dipped in a sauce. If you want to give it a try, you’ll be happy to know that Chick Fil A sauce would pair well with almost all types of pizzas.
