the Sauce Recipe

A little while back I had the honor of guest posting over at Once a Mom Always a Cook.
I shared a recipe that I use in my kitchen that we LOVE!
I was afraid that not all of you followed me over there on that day and I'd be so sad if you missed this!
Trust me....you'd be sad if you missed this!
My Prince Charming is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  That's south, y'all!
Down there they have a {wildly} popular fast-food chain of just chicken strips, fries and Texas toast.
It's called Raisin' Cane's Chicken Fingers.  If you're in the area, you've got to try it!
Our {personal} opinion is that the secret to his success is "the sauce".
  It is this yummy spicy sauce that comes with your meal.
  You'll find yourself using your chicken, fries, and toast to wipe every last drop out of the little container.  We always order extra!

Honestly.  We miss the sauce.  Literally.  Crave the sauce.
So, for a few months I played around with some ingredients and we think this is REALLY close!

We just simply call it "the Sauce", 'cause now we eat it on most everything!
Here's what you gotta do!
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup
 a shy 1/8 cup chili sauce (I use our local Jamaican Hot Pepper Sauce)
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder 
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup light olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon (or lime) juice

Mix all ingredients together well.  Store in an air-tight container OVERNIGHT..don't rush it.
  We've found this gets better the older it gets.  Honestly though, it never lasts too long!

Notes: My husband likes it spicy, so sometimes I double the chili sauce.  Also, I've tried fresh garlic but the powdered garlic has a more subtle blended taste.  For this recipe the powdered is best.  For the oil, I use coconut oil...since I live where there is coconuts. {smile}  But I'm sure olive oil would be just as good.

Hope you enjoy!

You're sauce is delicious. We tried it today, and we'll definitely be making it again. BJ wants me to make chicken fingers now so he can try it with them!
