The triumphant chant rang out over the Saratoga Race Track.

Hattie! Hattie! Hattie!

Tonight was the premiere of the Fried Chicken episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

Why should you care?

Because Bobby Flay challenged Jasper Alexander of Hattie's Chicken Shack in my hometown, Saratoga Springs, NY.

And lost! Whoo Hoo!!

Flay never had a chance. Jasper's lightly floured, juicy chicken, from a recipe created by Hattie herself in 1938, versus Flay's double batter-dipped chicken with a honey-chili powder sauce.

The decision was unanimous. All three judges overwhelmingly picked Jasper's fried chicken to win.

John says the next time we're in Saratoga, we're going to Hattie's.


Hattie! Hattie! Hattie!
