It is the latest in a series of videos in which Ramsay gives cutting feedback to home chefs on their culinary creations.
Talking through the recipe, Tara, who is known for her budget friendly recipes, said: ‘ Why not chicken nugget parmesan? It’s breaded boneless chicken, which is really just what a chicken cutlet is anyway.
‘It saves you all the time of making them and each one fits perfectly into these teeny, tiny party rolls [brioche burger buns].’
The amateur chef demonstrated dusting the nuggets with flour and adding cheese before covering with party rolls.

She continued: ‘The hardest part of this whole recipe is the garlic butter that goes on top of it. This isn’t my preferred chicken parmesan method, but it works well.
‘Especially if you’ve got some kids to feed, how could you go wrong with this.’
But Ramsay was unimpressed and pulled faces throughout Tara’s video.
The celebrity chef racked up over 12 million views on the clip. Many fans commented in defence of Tara.
One person wrote: ‘I’m starting to question your opinions now Mr Ramsay lol. That looks pretty damn good haha.’
A flood of responses to Gordon’s video argued Tara’s dish looks good and praised it for people cooking on a budget
Another said: ‘Really, Gordon Ramsay, what’s wrong with it? It’s quick, easy, affordable, portable and even the kids can make it.’
A third added: ‘This is what normal people without culinary degrees eat on a daily basis Gordon and TBH it looks good.’
Tara told Insider that she isn’t hurt by Gordon’s reaction to her recipe but shocked that he knew about her videos.
The mother-of-two, who has gained a following for her budget recipes, revealed that she’s overwhelmed by the support.
‘I’m not mad at Gordon at all, I was just blown away by how the community of women and moms came to support me,’ Tara said.
