But exactly what sauces does Church’s Chicken Have?

Some of the most popular sauces at Church’s Chicken include their signature Honey-Butter Biscuit Tenders Sauce, Spicy BBQ Sauce, and their classic Ranch and Honey Mustard sauces. But there are many more! As with other restaurants, I’ll also be sharing some hush-hush insider secrets on how to make the most of these delectable sauces, so keep reading!

All Church’s Chicken Sauces

Honey BBQ Sauce

You’ve just gotta try Church’s Chicken’s honey BBQ sauce when you next order from them. It’s a dark-brown, delightfully sweet, and smoky sauce that’ll have you licking your fingers in pure delight. The sticky, delicious exterior of this sauce perfectly complements their chicken tenders. 

Its mixture of ketchup, vinegar, honey, and apple cider works great on chicken tenders, wings, and thighs but tastes even better when it’s splashed on some French fries and honey butter biscuits.

Honey Sauce

The honey sauce this branch has to offer is something quite unlike others, even Popeye’s. Its lightness on the palate and pure honey sweetness, combined with high fructose corn syrup, water, sugar, and a splash of mustard seed, make it a fusion that’s perfect as a dip for fritters or drizzled-over fries. 

Despite it quite leaning on the extremely rich and sweet side, it still manages to strike a delicious balance with the addition of salt, soybean oil, and a blend of natural flavors. 

Honey Mustard Sauce

I’ve never had a honey mustard sauce quite like what Church’s Chicken has to offer. Much like Cane’s sauce version, its perfect balance between honey’s subtle sweetness and mustard’s strong kick is a match made in heaven. The zing of the mustard is tempered just enough to be enjoyable, and when fused with the sweet honey, well, it’s game over.

This creamy, sweet, and spicy sauce is made with mayo, mustard, honey, vinegar, and spices but doesn’t only pair well as a chicken sauce. It can be topped on crispy fries, potato wedges, or even drizzled over a baked potato.

Smoky Honey Q Sauce

Now, this Smoky Honey Q sauce is something unique in its entirety. Similar to Chick-Fil-A’s Honey Roasted BBQ sauce, this sauce has a beautiful sweetness followed by a subtly tangy kick, giving way to delicious, deep, smoky undertones of barbecue. 

The well-balanced mix of BBQ sauce, honey mustard, and Texas seasoning adds the finest level of flavor to every bite. It’s the perfect accompaniment to pulled chicken or pork sauce recipes, enhancing the natural flavors and adding an extra layer of enjoyment to your meal.    

Ranch Sauce

A personal recommendation you need to try is Church’s Chicken Ranch sauce. It’s everything you expect from ranch sauce and more. As with KFC’s ranch, it’s Creamy, tangy, rich, and garlicky, made with buttermilk, garlic, salt, onion, mustard, herbs, and spices.

The rich, thick texture and rich herbal and garlicky aroma complement everything from chicken to salads to sandwiches and even French fries. You can even buy this sauce in a separate container to store or use with another meal.   

Creamy Jalapeno Sauce

A creamy jalapeno sauce? Who’d have thought that combining the creamy essence of mayonnaise and the spicy flavor of jalapenos would be the most delectable match? I did, and it’s a standout sauce in my book! Its thick texture is even perfect for dipping French fries, spicy wings, and other chicken. 

Made with a blend of sour cream, mayonnaise, pickled jalapenos, smoked paprika, salt, cayenne pepper, cumin, garlic, and onion powder, this delicious creamy jalapeno sauce just hits all the right notes.

Purple Pepper Sauce

You won’t be asking what sauces does Church have after having this one. It’s one of their most popular sauces by a long shot! Even its name sounds delicious. This special blend of habanero peppers and bell peppers is the perfect complement to their fried chicken, chicken tenders, and chicken sandwiches.

The purple pepper jelly has an absolutely delightful balance of sweetness and a subtle heat that adds an extra layer of flavor to your meal.


A typical ketchup sauce. Not much, right? Well, it surprisingly was. I recently tried Church’s Chicken ketchup sauce and was taken aback by its tangy, slightly sweet flavor profile. It offers a rich tomato taste with the perfect blend of sweetness and tanginess. It strikes a pleasant balance of being moderately sweet, sour, tangy, and salty.

The use of real tomatoes gives it an authentic and robust flavor that doesn’t just complement Church’s Chicken but also elevates the flavors of French fries, cole slaw, spicy rice, and baked mac and cheese.  

White Gravy

This White gravy sauce from Church’s Chicken is not a sauce you wanna skip over. It’s a true indulgence for the senses with its heavier and richer profile and even diviner pepper punch.

This sauce is available in regular and large sizes and is made with dairy and eggs, giving it a nice, creamy texture and color and a mild, creamy taste. I’ve found it perfectly complements both rice and mashed potatoes beautifully, adding a touch of luxury to every bite.
