This homemade vegan copycat Raising Cane’s sauce recipe is easy to prepare and is the best dipping sauce you’ll ever make! 

In my pre-vegan, college days, I probably spent half of my student loans on tuition and the other half on trips to Raising Cane’s. Alex and I still joke about it now, but I knew everywhere in my college town (Norman, Oklahoma. Boomer Sooner!) based on its location and proximity to Raising Cane’s. 

I vividly remember school being shut down for snow in January and braving the “blizzard” to make a trip to Cane’s for a box combo with four chicken fingers, toast, sauce, sub the slaw for sauce, and one more sauce on top of that. 

I was there multiple times each week. My cousins came to visit, we’d go to Cane’s. My family made the trip to town, I took them to Cane’s. Every Thursday night, Alex and I would go get our usuals and then go to the bakery across the street for weekly Cake Eaters Club. 

Of course there were other chicken joints in Norman, Oklahoma, but I kept finding my way back to Cane’s for one simple reason: their sauce. 

Raising Cane’s website describes the sauce as “tangy with a little bit of spice and full of flavor.”

I used to put it on my chicken, my fries, and even my toast. 

When I moved away from Norman, still before I went vegan in 2016, I tried to replicate this sauce time and time again. We didn’t yet have any locations in Kansas City when I moved up here, so I attempted to make my own copycat Raising Cane’s sauce. 

I failed numerous times and just never could get it quite right. 

Fast forward a few years and my last intentional non-vegan meal that I can remember was my usual box combo order from Cane’s. I just figured I’d never replicate that sauce and it was one of the many things I would miss going vegan. 

I was wrong. I missed very little going vegan and I don’t even have to miss their sauce because I’ve made my own vegan copycat Raising Cane’s sauce.
