We are head over heels in love with KFC’s “Georgia Gold” BBQ sauce. With a base of yellow mustard and vinegar, it’s like honey mustard for grown-ups; not too sweet, and bringing tons of flavor without adding heat.
So what do you do if, like us, the nearest KFC is a forty minute drive away, and your chicken gets soggy by the time you get it home to eat it in private in a windowless room, silently and quickly, like a feverish rodent? You make it yourself.
Making KFC’s famous “Georgia Gold” copycat BBQ sauce is easier than you think, and it uses ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, if your pantry is both well-stocked and you have a pantry. You don’t even need to turn on the stove. If you even have a stove.
Use this sauce as a baste for cooking ribs, brush it onto fried chicken, or hell, dip frozen microwaved chicken tenders into it. This Georgia Gold BBQ sauce recipe has the power to elevate any meal to rockstar status. Enjoy.
