You guys know that I try to avoid fast food most of the time. Home cooking is much healthier, and cheaper too. But every so often, I must confess, I get a craving for Chick-Fil-A.
It’s not about the chicken – I can cook perfectly good chicken at home, thank you very much. It’s the sauce. That special sauce you get only from Chick-Fil-A – like a cross between smoky barbecue sauce and a creamy honey-mustard, with just a hint of lemon.
Well, it’s just plain silly to go out for chicken when all you really want is the sauce. And ordering a tub of the sauce by itself would be even sillier. So I realized I’d just have to make my own.
And once I got to work, it turned out to be pretty easy. All the components – mustard, mayo, barbecue sauce, lemon, and honey – were right in my fridge and pantry. It was just a question of adjusting the amounts until I achieved that perfect blend of creamy and spicy, tangy and sweet.
So now, with my new recipe, you can have the craveable taste of Chick-Fil-A sauce in your own kitchen whenever you want. You’re welcome.
