Copycat chick fil-a sauce and chicken nuggets.

Our Copycat-Chick-fil-A nuggets are good and all, some may even call them great – but the only way to eat the nuggets is with a generous side of this sauce! It is sweet, tangy, and mustard-y, and we cannot get enough of it. While it goes perfectly hand-in-hand with the nuggets, you can use this sauce on almost any chicken – and you really should. It is just that darn good. 

  • Fresh vs. Bottled Lemon Juice:

    While we believe that fresh is always best, this recipe would do just fine with store-bought bottled lemon juice.

  • Can this recipe be doubled?

    Feeding a crowd? Or maybe your family just goes nuts for Chick-fil-A sauce? You can definitely double this recipe!

  • Serving Suggestions:

    You will want to serve a generous amount of this on the side of your copycat Chick-fil-A nuggets. This is also a great dipping sauce for fries, or spread it on a fried chicken sandwich or burger!

  • Storage Instructions:

    Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
