There are 2 things that make Raising Cane's chicken fingers extra special. One is the fact that they are always freshly made to order, with fresh (not frozen) chicken tenderloins. And the other is the delicious (but top secret) Raising Cane's Sauce.

This signature sauce is freshly made each day in the restaurants' kitchens, using a blend of spices and seasonings. The precise recipe is only known to Cane's managers, who are sworn to absolute secrecy about its details.

But we have a copycat recipe for you that comes pretty darn close to the original!
