Homemade Fry Sauce

This Homemade Fry Sauce is so good with chicken nuggets or tenders, delicious with fries!  A copycat recipe based on my favorite Chick-Fil-A sauce.

James and I have been making an effort to eat out less.  Partially for our waistlines, but mostly for our wallets.  Three kids at a restaurant can get pretty expensive, especially when you factor in that you’re paying for a plate of food that they might take two bites of. 

Our girls can never seem to agree on the same place to go, and the baby really doesn’t want to go anywhere — ha!  Every now and then we get a craving for one of our old favorites and it’s been fun trying to recreate them at home.

James has been making the most deeeelicous fried chicken tenders lately, so good that I don’t even miss the take out version.  What I do miss though is that dang fry sauce!  You know, perfectly tangy and creamy, and goes great with chicken and french fries.  So much better than just plain ol’ ketchup.  I finally came up with a combination that gives the original sauce a run for its money.  

Introducing my secret ingredient: Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt has half the fat of regular mayo, but you won’t miss it because of its creamy, tangy flavor that enhances the flavor of food.  I love using it for this homemade fry sauce because of the extra “zip” the Greek Yogurt gives it. 

Blue Plate Light Greek is the only mayonnaise made with Greek Yogurt and it can be used just as you would regular mayonnaise!  It’s perfect on burgers or sandwiches, mixed into dressings or salads, and especially in this fry sauce.

Tips for Making Fry Sauce

This homemade fry sauce can be served right away, but it’s actually even tastier after it’s had time to chill in the fridge. This gives the ingredients time to mingle and the flavor really comes together! 

I used a blend of yellow and Dijon mustards, but you’re welcome to play around with your favorite mustards instead. 

This french fry dipping sauce feeds about four people if served on the side, but the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a crowd.
