Have you ever wanted to recreate the Cane’s Chicken Finger recipe at home? We tried it, and think it turned out pretty darn good!
In case you aren’t familiar with the restaurant, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is a Louisiana-based fried chicken joint with all the traditional Southern fixings like Texas toast, cole slaw and crinkle cut fries. It’s one of our favorite fast-food restaurants here in Southern California, and always has a line down the street — just like In-n-Out burger!
After visiting the restaurant a few times, we decided to recreate the Cane’s chicken recipe at home, complete with a replica of that delicious Raising Cane’s Chicken Finger Sauce recipe. Although the restaurant keeps this a trade secret, I think we came pretty close to the original.
The key to getting that crispy coating is by coating the tender fresh chicken tenders with whisked egg and panko bread crumbs. Then, they are dropped into the deep fryer for about 3 minutes or so.
Serve this with my delicious old-fashioned Cole slaw recipe!
