Chick-Fil-A Honey Mustard Recipe
Not to toot my own horn, but I’m a bit of a honey mustard connoisseur! As a kid, I was OBSESSED with honey mustard and had my favorite restaurants based on how much I liked their honey mustard sauce.
At the top of my list has always been Chick-Fil-A’s honey mustard — it’s sweet, but not too sweet and it’s got just the right amount of tanginess. It’s not ALL yellow mustard and it’s not ALL Dijon…it’s just…well…perfect! Especially with those yummy Chick-fil-A nuggets!

What’s in Chick-Fil-A Honey Mustard?
Of course, the exact recipe is top secret! However, if you know what’s in the mix, you can create a pretty solid copycat at home!
According to the Chick-Fil-A company website, their honey mustard contains the following: water, honey, sugar, distilled vinegar, modified corn starch, mustard seed, salt, garlic*, spices, soybean oil, turmeric, natural flavors, onion*, sodium benzoate added as preservative, xanthan gum, guar gum, molasses, corn syrup, caramel color, tamarind) *dehydrated.
That’s a LOT of ingredients! The good news is that when you’re making the sauce fresh at home, you don’t need all of the additional preservatives and stabilizers.
In fact, our copycat honey mustard only requires 6 simple ingredients:
- Yellow mustard

Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Double This Recipe?
Absolutely! If your family goes through honey mustard like ours does, I highly suggest doubling or even tripling the recipe ingredients and making a big batch that will last for a week or two.
That’s the beauty of this recipe, it’s easy to scale up!
Also, I just want to note that you can’t really “mess up” either. Your taste preference might be slightly different than mine. If you like your sauce a little sweeter, simply add a touch more honey. Want more zip? Add a little more Dijon. You can’t go wrong!
How Long Does Homemade Honey Mustard Last?
Since our recipe doesn’t use preservatives, you want to keep it refrigerated. It should last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
I recommend giving it a good stir before serving. If it looks like there is a lot of separation happening after a week or two, I’d toss it and make a new batch.
