Chicken nugget parmesan is an “Italian tragedy”.

We’ll, that’s what Gordon Ramsey said when I posted this on social media.

I had made this recipe to share on Tik Tok and it did well in terms of views on that app.

It gained the attention of Chef Gordon Ramsey and he had so much to say about it that he dueted my recipe in a reaction video.

Check out the full video here:

He was not happy. Sorry Gordon!

Something awesome happened as a result though. Besides getting his attention which I was super happy about.

Even an insult by him is still a compliment if you think about it.

The video he posted got over 27 million views. How awesome is that??

So many more people got to see my recipe video that I originally anticipated.

Also, the internet came to bat for me!! People were really upset at Gordon for not liking my chicken nugget parmesan recipe.

It got so much attention actually that several news outlets picked the story up.

It was so cool!!

What chicken nuggets should I use?

I used Perdue dinosaur chicken nuggets for this recipe.

I thought my kids would enjoy that better than regular chicken nuggets.

Any brand you’d like to use would be fine. It really doesn’t matter at all.

Just be sure to cook them according to the directions on the package first.

What tomato sauce should I use?

That’s completely up to you!

I used Raoes Homemade marinara sauce here but use whatever brand you’re into.
