Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • It’s not just for chicken, it is great as a fry sauce too! It’s also great on burgers and sandwiches.
  • This sauce is creamy, tangy and packed full of flavor.
  • Made with a few staple ingredients blended together.
  • Similar to fry sauce, but with a kick!
  • It tastes just like the kind you get at the restaurant.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Mayonnaise use a good quality mayo like Duke’s or Hellman’s. If you can’t find either, then any will work, just be sure it’s not Miracle Whip.
  • Ketchup – use your favorite brand.
  • Worcestershire Sauce Lea and Perrins is my go to brand.
  • Garlic Powder – the brand doesn’t matter, just make sure it’s fresh.
  • Black Pepper – try fresh ground pepper for an extra kick.
  • Salt – I use kosher salt, but any salt will work.

Recipe Tips & Variations

  • For even more flavor, add a pinch of celery salt or for more heat some Frank’s hot sauce. A pinch of Old Bay or Tony Chachere’s is also a great option. The seasonings are completely customizable to your preference.
  • For a smoother texture, try pulsing everything in a food processor.
  • Letting the sauce rest in the refrigerator is critical to developing the flavors. 6-24 hours is the best amount of time to chill.
  • The black pepper adds the extra kick needed in this sauce, so don’t skimp on it.

Storing & Freezing

Storing: Place the sauce in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Spoon out the amount of sauce you want to use at a time rather than dipping directly into the bowl. This will allow the sauce to be stored longer.

Freezing: Sauces with mayo do not freeze well.
