3-Ingredient Sauce:

  • 1 cup prepared coleslaw dressing (Note 1)
  • 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons honey BBQ sauce (Note 2)

OR If you can't find Coleslaw Dressing, here is a 5-ingredient alternative sauce:

  • 3/4 cup full-fat mayo (we love Best Foods/Hellman's)
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard not Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons honey BBQ sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, optional
  • Salt & pepper


  • 3-INGREDIENT SAUCE: Whisk the three ingredients together. Add a tiny pinch of salt and pepper. Taste and adjust anything to personal preference. Chill in the fridge or use it immediately!
  • 5-INGREDIENT SAUCE: Whisk the 5 ingredients together. Add salt and pepper to taste (I add 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper). Taste and adjust anything to personal preference. Chill in the fridge or use immediately.
  • STORAGE: Once the sauce is prepared, transfer to a glass jar or airtight container and store in the fridge. This sauce will stay good for 5-7 days in the fridge.



Note 1: Coleslaw dressing: You can find this dressing in the refrigerated produce section of the grocery store near other dressings and dips. We haven't loved the results of this sauce with shelf-stable coleslaw dressings. We like Litehouse® or Marie’s® best. 
Note 2: BBQ sauce: We like Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ® sauce best in this recipe.
Note 3: Nutrition Facts: Chick-Fil-A Sauce Nutrition will vary depending on what sauce you use. The Chick-Fil-A Sauce Calories for the 5-ingredient sauce are included in this recipe card. There are 130 calories in the 3 ingredient sauce.
