What is KFC buffalo ranch sauce?

I mean if you read the name of it you can pretty much figure it out right? Think about your favorite Hidden Valley ranch salad dressing crossed with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce / cayenne and BAM, that is kinda’ it! 😉 I bet your mouth is watering right now right?

Can you buy KFC sauces? I have yet to find a store that sells any of their; Buffalo Ranch, Honey Sauce, Ketchup, Classic Ranch, Honey, Ketchup, old school Finger Lickin Good Sauce Recipe or Hot Sauces. That is why we are here! If you can’t visit there often, you can now make a version of them at home that taste amazingly similar.

Buffalo Ranch ingredients

KFC Buffalo Ranch Ingredients

If you love spicy you can make a version of their “regular” honey packets with our How to Make Hot Honey Sauce directions. You may never go back to just sweet after you try that one friends. For this one you will need to get out;

  • Mayonnaise, Best Foods is better than Miracle Whip
  • Buttermilk or dairy-free can use almond milk
  • Hot sauce or Sriracha
  • Brown sugar or comparable sugar-free alternative
  • Chives diced fine
  • Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
  • Parsley
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder

As for prepping you will just need a bowl and a whisk to incorporate until smooth.

How to Make Buffalo Ranch Dressing

We have a from scratch start from the beginning recipe below. You could mix just 2 ingredients together though and make a version of it. Like I said earlier, you could add your favorite buffalo sauce with bottled Ranch, adjust to your heat preference. OR whisk in some Popeyes Sweet Heat Sauce that will add a bit of sweetness into the mix.

Use a whisk with all the ingredients in the bowl until it is smooth and thick. Taste and you can adjust the flavor to your liking. If you want to make it the same color you would need to add a bit of food coloring but optional of course.

How do you turn a sauce into a dressing?

All you do is thin it out. You can do this a number of ways but typically milk would be used. If you want to keep it thicker use more buttermilk or a combination of the two until you get the consistency you want. This is great on top of salad too this way!

How do you make sauce less spicy?

You can tame down spicy sauces with more milk. That is neutralize the heat but whisking in more to your liking. Start with a few Tbsp. and taste until it is just right for you.

Homemade Chicken Fries in Air Fryer or our KFC Air Fryer Chicken Breast are great choices when it comes to the main meal. Both will give you that super crispy coating you love from your favorite fast food restaurant. Then amp up the norm with these Beer Batter Fries and dip dip away y’all. 😉

What kind of meat is used in KFC fried chicken wings?

KFC uses broiler chickens, bread to be super tender and juicy. Typically raised for their meat and are known for their relatively fast growth and high meat yield, the wings are marinated, breaded, and fried to achieve the signature crispy and flavorful taste.
