Canes sauce is known for its crazy good flavor profile. Dip your chicken fingers, potato chips, and even fries.
Have you ever been to Raising Cane’s? It is a chain fast food restaurant that only serves chicken fingers. We have one in Fort Collins, and were a little skeptical at first, but it has quickly become one of our favorite places.
It is not your traditional fast food chain, that is for sure! They make everything fresh to order, and use real, quality, good pieces of chicken. They are famous for their Canes sauce. It is the only dipping sauce that they offer, and it is just that good, they don’t need to offer anything else. It is great to make at home to serve with your favorite Turkey Burgers or just about anything else.
My husband absolutely loves the Canes sauce, and always needs a couple extra for his chicken. I had to find a way to make it at home, so he could have it more often. It took a few tries to figure out exactly how to make canes sauce, but it is actually super easy. Just mix a few staple ingredients together, let it sit for awhile for all the flavors to blend together, and you are good to go! For a quick weeknight meal you can serve it with homemade chicken tenders or grilled chicken skewers.
What Is Canes Sauce
Raising Cane’s Sauce is a ketchup and mayo based sauce that is spiced up with a few other spices that make it special. From what I have learned it is made slightly different at different areas of the country. In the South it is supposedly a spicier version that is made with creole seasoning. Here in Colorado it isn’t spicy, but has the kick from pepper in the background. So you can use this as a base and then add some spice if you are used to it that way.
Canes sauce has quickly become a staple at our house. It is good on so much more than just chicken tenders. We use it to top burgers, grilled chicken, and it is even great on grilled shrimp. Unfortunately Raising Cane’s restaurant is not all over the place, so not everyone can experience it. But trust me, try this copycat version for Canes Sauce and you will understand what all the hype is about.
We pretty much had to force my dad to go for lunch one day. He did not see how a restaurant that only served one thing could be any good. Now, he has to go every time they visit! I’m sure that one taste and you’ll be hooked.
Cane’s Sauce Ingredients

- Garlic Powder
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Black Pepper
How to Make Cane’s Sauce
It is super simple to make, it will take you about 30 seconds. But it is best if you let it sit for a couple hours for everything to come together. Letting sit is the hardest part, but it makes everything come together and is a totally different experience. All you have to do is just mix all 5 of the ingredients together until everything is blended. Then just cover and put in the fridge. Mix it together in the morning and then when you are making dinner this will be absolutely perfect!
