Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers and Sauce

Raising Cane's Copycat Recipe

6 skinless, boneless, chicken breast halves cut into 1/2 inch strips
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 quart oil for frying

Place chicken strips into a large, resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix the egg, buttermilk and garlic powder. Pour mixture into bag with chicken. Seal, and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours. 

In another large, resealable plastic bag, mix together the flour, breadcrumbs, salt and baking powder. 
Remove the chicken from refrigerator, and drain, discarding buttermilk mixture. Place chicken in flour mixture bag. Seal, and shake to coat. 

Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet to 375 degrees. Carefully place coated chicken in hot oil. Fry until golden brown and juices run clear. Drain on paper towels.

Cane's Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a small bowl combine all ingredients and mix until well blended. Store in an airtight container for a few hours before serving. Will stay good in a container for up to 2 weeks. Makes 1 1/2 cups.

Raising Cane’s menu consists entirely of various combinations of batter fried chicken tenders, crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw, Texas toast and the chain’s signature tangy spicy Cane’s Sauce. Customers can choose from ordering three, four or six chicken fingers, or they can put three chicken tenderloins on a Kaiser roll for a sandwich, but that’s about it.


  1. We had a Raising Cane's open recently.. I was not impressed. Bland chicken strips was all I had.

    1. You obviously have no taste buds and/or you are from above the Mason Dixon line, a horibble place when compared to the amazing back porch that is the South

    2. Rasising cane's is better than the dick you suck for pocket change. This how don't know what she got the privilege to eat

    3. If you skipped the dipping sauce, you missed the point.

    4. exactly Why so negative? don't like it don't eat it....amazing
      how negative this country has become

  2. I love raising canes, the best chicken strips. Very juicy and crisp at the same time. My kids love it.

  3. Not only is the food hot and fresh, but the service is excellent.

  4. I just had Cane's for the first time and I'm impressed. The sauce reminds me a bit of a tartar sauce that my brother makes when we have fish frys at our house. I liked that they use real unprocessed chicken, makes the strips real good.

  5. I've made my version a dozen or more times and it tastes so much better but pretty damn close to the real thing. I love raising canes but making your own is so much more fun!

  7. What is the best oil to fry in

    1. Cane's uses low sodium Soy Bean Oil, according to company nutritional releases.
