Raising Cane’s Sauce

box combo

Besides In-N-Out, Raising Cane’s is the best fast food I’ve ever had!  Raising Cane’s originated in Baton Rouge by an LSU student who suggested a chicken fingers restaurant as his business plan for one of his classes.  He got a C on the assignment but still went with the idea, and over the past 15 years the chain has been expanding all over the country.  Cane’s even gets an endorsement from Michigan Football stars Drew Dileo (full disclosure: a Baton Rouge native) and Roy Roundtree:

Each combo comes with chicken fingers, crinkle cut fries, Texas toast (delicious), and Cane’s sauce.  I found a recipe for the sauce that Roy Roundtree is raving about!  It’s really simple:

– 1/2 cup mayonnaise
– 1/4 cup ketchup
– 1/2 tsp garlic powder
– 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
– ground black pepper
– dash of lemon juice

Looks pretty similar huh!?  These are just chicken tenders from Walmart.  The sauce also tasted pretty much the same (I didn’t have lemon juice though).  I think it’s best served cold, and it goes great with chicken, fries, and even bread.


One response to “Raising Cane’s Sauce

  1. I also did the sauce recipe without lemon juice and it’s pretty much spot on. The pepper is up to you, I went on the higher side, plus I used powdery ground pepper, not the stuff in a pepper shaker, but does it really matter? Of course not. Make the recipe, chill in the fridge an hour or two and get whatever fingers you want to dip. I made some this weekend and have had 3 different types of fingers with it. It makes any of them even better! I love Raising Cane’s, but they are not around the Chicago area (yet). We have a clone called ChickeNow in one of the malls here that does it right as well, but I don’t live that close. I’ve had Zaxby’s as well, which is also like Cane’s.
