All about this Chick Fil A Sauce…

  • Of course you can buy a large squeeze bottle of the sauce, but did you know it’s just as easy to make it at home?
  • It’s been said the secret of the sauce is that it is honey mustard mixed with coleslaw or ranch dressing. I have heard from employees though that it’s not ranch it’s the coleslaw dressing, which is very similar to this particular recipe. You can’t get closer unless you go to the restaurant yourself.
