Sriracha Dipping Sauce

I don’t know much, but I do know this: a good sauce makes any dish better. The other day we made Chicken and Waffles for lunch, and we had some leftover chicken fingers. Today I heated them up for lunch, but I needed a new dipping sauce. I remembered a creamy sriracha dipping sauce I’d seen somewhere along the way, and it sounded like the perfect compliment to my fried chicken.

alt="sriracha dipping sauce"

1 cup mayo
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
4 tablespoons sriracha (a little more if you like it spicier)

You can’t get much more simple than that list of ingredients! All you do is mix those ingredients together and serve it up! It doesn’t get much easier than this.

It was so delicious on my fried chicken tenders that I tried it on my grilled hamburger tonight. Perfect! It would also be delicious on rosemary oven fries or sweet potato fries. It is super good with a piece of grilled chicken or a grilled chicken sandwich. Y’all be creative and let me know what you try it on.

Creamy Sriracha Dipping Sauce is a simple way to dress up any casual meal! It is so simple that it doesn’t have to be reserved for meals. We eat it with so many snacks that I make a batch and keep it in the fridge in a mason jar. The girls love to pull it out anytime! It’s no wonder this has become one of my most popular recipes on Pinterest!

  1. Love this! (Though I hate mayo so I used sour cream and it was delicious)

    • Ashley Mills Hill says

      Thanks for sharing your twist. I’m constantly asked about substitutions (most of which I haven’t tried), so I’m happy to know you liked it with sour cream.

    • You can also compliment it with a spicy mustard. Sounds weird but if you put a tad in with the mix it actually works perfectly.

  2. Hi,
    You showed a recipe for roasted ? that only used olive oil and smoked paprika.

  5. Perfect – thanks, Ashley! Just what I was looking for.
    I made a version substituting the Mayo with a half cup each of full fat sour cream and plain Balkan yogurt. The result is delicious perfection as a chip dip and/or topping for South East Asian inspired burritos. Yaaay, cross cultural deliciousness!
