Dave's Hot Chicken Sauce Recipe

What is Dave’s Sauce Made Out of?

Mayonnaise: This white and creamy dressing is a must-have condiment in every fried, junk food. For this Dave’s insanity sauce, you need 1 cup of mayonnaise. You can make it at home or use your favorite brand. 

Butter: Add 4 oz of vegan or grass-fed butter. 

Dijon Mustard: This mustard is pale, yellow in color, and slightly spicier than the regular mustard. For some spicy kick, I recommend 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard. If you can’t get your hand in this, you can substitute it for yellow mustard. 

Mustard: Even if you add Dijon mustard, regular mustard is a must. 2 tbsp of mustard of your favorite brand. 

Paprika: Hot chicken without smoky, fiery flavor is like fries without ketchup, right? 1 tbsp of paprika will give the sauce a fiery-red exterior and smoky-hot texture. 

Onion Powder: Onion powder has that strong onion flavor that regular onion can’t provide. Add 1 tbsp of onion powder. 

Cayenne Pepper Powder: Whenever we hear spicy, we think of cayenne pepper, am I right? This spicy, fruity flavor is a must-add-on in this Dave’s hot chicken sauce recipe. Just sprinkle ½ tbsp of cayenne pepper powder.

Dried Parsley: For an herby, leafy texture, add 2 tbsp of dried parsley. 

Garlic powder: Garlic powder adds a concentrated flavor of garlic, that gives a sweet, yet assertive taste to the dish. Add 1 tbsp of garlic powder. 

Spicy Garlic B-dubs sauce: This sauce gives a spicy kick without overpowering the texture. For this recipe, you need 1 tbsp of this particular sauce. 

Garlic: Add 2 cloves of diced garlic for some juicy crunch in the sauce recipe. 

Brown sugar: Brown sugar will give the sauce a caramelized flavor and balance out the spice level. For this recipe, you will need 3 tbsp of brown sugar. 

Pickle juice: Vinegar-soaked pickle has been a great addition to the sauce for its strong tangy flavor. Pour 3 tbsp of pickle juice for a vinegary and salty taste in Dave’s hot chicken sauce recipe. 

Black pepper: American cuisine is somehow incomplete without a dash of black pepper in the recipe. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of freshly grounded black pepper in the recipe for some spicy kick. 

How to Make Dave’s Hot Chicken Sauce?

Step 1: In a saucepan, melt the vegan butter on low heat. 

Step 2: add brown sugar and caramelize it. Make sure it doesn’t burn. 

Step 3: Now, put the diced garlic and cook it until golden brown. 

Step 4: Add mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and regular mustard. Whisk them properly. 

Step 5: sprinkle the powder above mentioned one by one. Don’t forget to keep whisking. 

Step 6: Stir until the sauce starts to shimmer. 

Step 7: let it cool down and pour it into the jar. 

Step 8: Serve them with the hot chicken.
