What Sauces Does Bojangles Have, Taste Test & Pairings
Share on:

Known for its fried chicken, Bojangles has become synonymous with happiness over the years. Still, it’s not only fried chicken they offer, but many juicy chicken meals and sides. My favorites, though, are definitely their straightforward but exceptionally tasty sauces. And since I love testing sauces and pairings, I did just that! So, what sauces does Bojangles have? 

Bojangles has a selection of four sauces, BBQ, Bo’s special sauce, honey mustard sauce, and ranch. They also have four dressing choices 1000 Island, Blue Cheese, Fat-Free Italian, and Honey Dijon. 

Although Bojangles’ sauce selection seems small at first glance, don’t underestimate them until you’ve tried their sauces on their meals. Specializing in chicken in all its glory, four sauces are more than enough to make your meal as decadent as it can possibly get. In this article, I’ll tell you about their sauces and what to pair them with. 

List of Bojangles Sauces 

Bojangles offers four sauces, and each of them has its own charm. Below is a list of all Bojangles sauces. I also added the best pairings for all of them, so there’s one less thing to think about when making your order!

BBQ Sauce

Bojangles BBQ Sauce

Bojangles BBQ sauce is a traditional and classic BBQ sauce with the signature Bojangles’ deep and rich flavor. This sauce is sweet, tangy, and smoky with a subtle spicy note.

In general, you can pair it with any of their sandwiches, but I prefer it with their sausage sandwiches.

Bo’s Special Sauce

Bo's Special Sauce

The name suits it as a glove because it really is special; this creamy, tangy, and slightly sweet sauce with just enough spiciness is perfect for almost any of the Bojangles meals and sides.

I like it with their chicken salad but also with their biscuit sandwiches, fries, and rice bowl. This one pairs quite well with a lot on the menu, especially the Chicken Supremes.

Honey Mustard Sauce

Bojangles Honey Mustard Sauce

Sweet, tangy, and mustardy, the Bojangles honey mustard sauce is perfectly balanced so that you can enjoy it even if you aren’t a huge mustard fan.

My favorite pair for it are their chicken sandwiches, fries, chicken salad, Cajun pintos, green beans, and dirty rice, and it was absolutely delicious!

Ranch Sauce

Bojangles Ranch Sauce

The ranch sauce at Bojangles is a creamy, tangy, fresh, and herbal-tasting delight that pairs great with their chicken meals. 

In addition to the chicken sandwiches, I love this sauce with their biscuits, fries, coleslaw, chicken salad, as well as their macaroni and cheese. 

List of Bojangles Salad Dressings

Bojangles also holds four types of Ken’s dressings — alongside each salad, you get a Ken’s dressing packet of your choice. And the options are delicious; you just need to make a perfect pair with one of their salads!

Bojangles Salads Garden, Grilled Chicken, and Chicken Supremes

Ken’s 1000 Island Dressing

The 1000 Island dressing is one of the four salad dressings. It is creamy, tangy, and slightly sweet, combining mayonnaise, ketchup, pickle, and spices. It resembles tartar sauce and tzatziki, but it isn’t a copy — it’s an original sauce. 

You can pair this sauce with both chicken and Garden salads, but I prefer it with the chicken salads, especially with the Chicken Supremes Salad. The tang of this dressing calls for something meaty, which is why I recommend the chicken salad for this dressing. 

Ken’s Blue Cheese Dressing

There’s nothing I can say about this dressing that could capture how delicious and rich it is. It has very noticeable blue cheese flavors; it is very creamy and decadently tasty.

I would definitely recommend both chicken salads for this dressing, but that doesn’t mean that the Garden Salad doesn’t go with it. It’s just that I like a little meaty bite with this rich sauce. On the other hand, the Garden Salad creates a delightful contrast between fresh and tangy, making this a great combo.

Ken’s Fat-Free Italian Dressing

I’d have this dressing even if it were full-fat instead of fat-free. It is very light, tangy, and a bit acidic. It has a distinct herbal note, a little spicy, and a whole lot fresh.

I honestly don’t know whether this dressing goes better with the Garden, Grilled Chicken, or Chicken Supremes Salad because it’s amazing in all three! It’s so delicious, and it fits great in both combinations. So, whichever you choose, you will choose right. 

You can even recreate it yourself — look at how easy it is!

Ken’s Honey Dijon Dressing

This dressing is gentle and flavorful but not overwhelming, making it an excellent choice for those who want their food tasty but still on the mellow side. It is sweet, tangy, and mildly spicy, with notes of honey and Dijon mustard.

I recommend the Grilled Chicken Salad for this dressing, but it goes well enough with the Garden Salad if you rather want to take that road.

No Dressing Choice

Considering that the Garden, Grilled Chicken, and Chicken Supremes Salads at Bojangles are delicious and rich as they are, dressing them is not mandatory. So, if you are happy with your salad, you can opt for the no-dressing choice and have it as it is.
