Raising Cane’s Secret Cane’s Dipping Sauce Recipe: Indulge Your Inner Glutton Mandy Ellis April 27, 2014 Condiments, Cooking, Cool, Fast Food, Interesting, Recipes, Restaurants, Reviews 9 Comments Raising Cane’s Dipping Sauce Recipe What makes a great sauce? Is it the tang? The spice? The secret recipe of ingredients that you have a hard time matching at home? When I think about amazing sauces, I think about the sauces where I actually can’t stop myself from licking the container. The sauces I want to put on everything from meats to fries to veggies. The recipes that have me trying to stuff as much of the sauce on each bite as I can. And when I visit Raising Cane’s, I find customers, and myself, doing all of these embarrassing yet satisfying acts with the Cane’s sauce. The first time I had Raising Cane’s chicken fingers, I fell in love. They were dripping with juice, crunchy, and full of flavor and the Cane’s sauce…was awesome! The sauce fit in perfectly with the blend of fried chicken, crinkle cut fries, Texas Toast, coleslaw, and Dr. Pepper I ordered. I felt like I was finally back in the South getting a good dose of fried-coma food. Raising Cane’s uses fresh, never frozen chicken tenderloins and even marinates their chicken fingers for a full 24 hours before they’re served to you! The wonderful tenderness and flavor of the meat, the great flavor the breading adds, and the juice…it’s like they add extra juice to it after they fry it. I’m not sure how they’re able to keep the chicken so moist and fresh, but these fingers are probably some of the best I’ve ever had. As someone who’s visited Raising Cane’s numerous times, I can fully vouch that the chicken is never overcooked, dry, or contains any hard parts. You know those chicken fingers you get at some restaurants or fast food chains where the ends are so hard you can’t even chew them? The ones where the breading either falls off immediately or clings for dear life to the chicken. This is nothing like those. Each batch is the same and all batches are tasty whether you go through the drive-thru, buy them inside the restaurant, or want to reheat your leftovers the next day. Nothing goes better with fresh-from-the-fryer tenders than a great creamy, flavorful sauce. Raising Cane’s did an excellent job coming up with the simple yet complex-tasting recipe for their Cane’s sauce. You’d think there was more to it than just six ingredients with the way it complements the chicken and sides. The initial tasty impression that the sauce left with me encouraged my taste buds and brain to perform a taste analysis. I bet this sauce is mostly mayo, I thought to myself. And low and behold once I found the recipe online from Copy Kat.com, I found out the sauce is basically flavored mayo. The bite of ketchup and pepper pair well with the creamy and fattiness of the mayo. Cutting in the Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder give the sauce a little bit and kick to round out all the notes you want to hit in your mouth. Seems so simple to make such a great signature side. Raising Cane’s super secret Cane’s sauce recipe is on lock-down. Even most of the employees don’t know the secret recipe and will never be taught how to make the sauce. If you want to make this sauce at home, the recipe below is quick, easy, and most of the ingredients you probably already have around your house. As for nutrition facts for this mayo-heavy sauce, Raising Cane’s is working on it. On their website they have the following information regarding the nutrition of their entire menu: “At this time, Raising Cane’s is in the process of performing nutritional value testing on the food we serve. Thus, we are unable to provide you with the nutritional content information you’ve requested. Raising Cane’s uses a trans fat free soybean oil. We can tell you that each chicken finger weighs approximately 1.5 to 1.7 oz and a serving of our crinkle cut French Fries is approximately 5 oz. Since portion size also plays a key role in a healthy diet, we hope that this information allows you to plan appropriately for your individual diet needs.” So if you were hoping to find out how many points or calories or upset stomachs this sauce may cause you, you’ll have to use the try-and-see method or wait until Raising Cane’s updates their nutrition content. I think it’s safe to say that since the sauce is mostly mayo, it’s not going to be the healthiest condiment out there. They do provide an Allergen Information PDF if you are worried you may be allergic to some of the ingredients they include. The recipe below has been adjusted from CopyKat.com’s recipe to be the serving size that Raising Cane’s gives you with an order of their chicken fingers. It’s also easy to double or triple this recipe if you’re making a large amount of dip for your family or a party. I honestly try to finish the entire serving with the chicken fingers and fries, but I typically end up getting full from the food before I can eat all the sauce. Which is fine with me because when I reheat the chicken the next day, I still have Cane’s sauce to enjoy! If you’re looking to make Cane’s sauce regularly at your home, this recipe is exactly like what you get at the chain; just as creamy, delectable, and perfect on any fried food. If you’re looking for something to dip in your Cane’s sauce other than chicken fingers, try making Fried Mac and Cheese Balls. Their gooey and divine cheesy center will melt with the sauce and provide an ultimate comfort food coma.

It would be a lot easier to say 1 teaspoon, which is the exact same thing. Reply Emily April 28th, 2014 Ive heard that what really makes the sauce great is letting it sit for 24 hrs or maybe just overnight…just to let the sauce really meld together. Reply Ed April 28th, 2014 Reheating leftovers?

Reply alanna May 28th, 2014 close enough, but there’s way more ingredients that just that. and in response to a previous comment–to reheat cane’s, just pop it in the oven around 300 for about 10-15 min–just keep an eye on it. because we all know, you can’t reheat canes in the microwave—-yuk! Reply Deborah October 7th, 2014 i just made this now. I love it. I tweeked it to my own taste. A little less garlic. I used Blue Plate Mayo and the rest of this recipe. I love it! Reply Jeff October 13th, 2014 Does no one else taste the old bay and cayenne in the sauce? Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
