Raising Cane’s Dipping Sauce

Raising Cane’s Dipping Sauce has to be one of my new loves. It is a tangy, rich sauce that is packed full of flavor, and it is a little tough putting your finger on exactly what it is to make it so special. This has to be one of the best dipping sauces for chicken around.

You may not know what exactly a Raising Cane’s is, well if you haven’t been to one it is a place that specializes in chicken tenders and this amazing dipping sauce. They also have some of the best lemonade around.

What makes their chicken so special is that it has never been frozen. So these folks care about how their food tastes.

Today I am focusing on the dipping sauce because it is terribly unique, and I think it also goes great with French fries, on a hamburger, or even as a sandwich spread.

    Well, it turned out great. I was following the recipe to a T, except for having cut it in half. Then I went to put the garlic in and accidentally used onion powder by mistake. I have to say it was delicious, I couldn’t imagine it being any better. So, I may stick with my mistaken version. Or replace it with garlic next time and compare.

    I would give 5 stars if tweaked a little. We did a side by side comparison tonight. Very close when we added more ketchup so 3/4 cup instead of 1/2 it was exact as far as we could tell.

    Add a tiny amount of distilled white vinegar to this recipe, and let it sit for 24 hours, and prepare to be blown away.

    I’m so happy I tried this recipe! I made it, and asked my daughter to try it without telling her what it was. She said, “it tastes just like Cane’s sauce!” She actually ate all of her chicken using this sauce, and she doesn’t like chicken!

    I just used this recipe and it was so good! I had some fresh ground pepper, but not much, so I ended up having to use so much more, but still, it’s really good!

    Cane’s just opened a restaurant in my neighborhood last week, so I made my first visit yesterday. Was looking for recipes to dupe it

    Haven’t tried this yet, but I think it could be improving by replacing the ketchup with H***z Chili Sauce and adding a TBSP of brown mustard. The sauce tasted a lot like a knockoff of cajun remoulade (makes sense, the founder is from Louisiana), and the quick version is usually made with mayonnaise, chili sauce (pretty similar to ketchup– made with Tomato paste , Vinegar, Sugar, Salt, Dehydrated Onions, Garlic Powder and spices) and mustard.

    Maybe what you’ve got is about the same, but my first impression was chili sauce and wanted to pass it on. Thanks for the starting point.
