If you are like me and live where there is a Raising Cane’s, then you know that their chicken tender sauce is unbeatable. It has this creamy texture that is both a little sweet and smokey. But how do they attain such an amazing flavor? With only 6 ingredients. This recipe is one of my most popular YouTube and I wanted to share it on the blog! You can literally dip anything in this sauce and it will taste amazing!
First, in a small bowl, add your mayo, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, pepper, and salt. Yep, that is it! Give that a mix and you can store this sauce for up to a week, but it will not last you very long because it is so good. You can play around with the quantities of. the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce depending on how sweet or smokey you want your sauce. I give a range of measurements for those ingredients. Additionally what makes this sauce so good is that it is pepper forward. If you do not like pepper as much, you can scale that back as well! There is no right or wrong way.
Raising Cane’s focuses on fried chicken tenders, their crinkle fries. and signature Texas toast. If you want a box combo, get a large lemonade with it too. To make the chicken is really simple. First get your chicken tenders from the store. In a glass container, add your chicken and cover with buttermilk. Add various seasonings, for mine I did 1/2 Tbsp Salt, 1/2 Tbsp Thyme, 1/2 Tbsp Onion Powder, 1/2 Tbsp Paprika, and 1/2 Tbsp Pepper. Let this marinate at least a couple of hours to overnight. Then double bread in flour. So dip marinated chicken into the flour, back into the buttermilk, and once more in flour. Fry in hot oil.
Serve this delicious meal with crinkle fries and enjoy dipping in all that sauce!
