14 Jun 2024

This Father's Day, ditch the restaurant reservations and skip the stress! Instead, create a show-stopping lunch that Dad can enjoy. Even if you're a beginner in the kitchen, these ideas are so simple, that you'll be whipping up a lunchbox masterpiece in no time. For inspiration, we've also included some tips inspired by MasterChef India contestant Harish Closepet's lunchbox ideas. 

Chicken Skewers 

Marinate bite-sized Godrej Real Good Chicken pieces in your Dad's favourite flavours (think teriyaki, lemon pepper, or even a simple herb blend) and thread them onto skewers with colourful bell peppers, onions, and cherry tomatoes. These skewers can be grilled, baked, or even pan-fried for a quick and delicious lunch option. 

Bonus tip: Pack a small container of dipping sauce for extra flavour.

Spicy Chicken Wraps

Shred some cooked Godrej Real Good Chicken and tossed it in a flavourful mix of chopped red onion, green chillies, coriander leaves, and a squeeze of lime juice. Add a spoonful of yoghurt or mayonnaise for creaminess. Wrap this delicious mixture in whole wheat rotis for a satisfying lunch.

Bonus tip: Add mint chutney or grated cheese for a burst of flavour.

Creamy Tomato Pasta Salad

Creamy Tomato Pasta Salad

This recipe is a crowd-pleaser, perfect for both Dads and kids. Cook your favourite pasta. While it cools, combine chopped tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, and a simple dressing made of olive oil, lemon juice, and a touch of oregano. Toss everything together with the pasta and pack it in a leak-proof container for a refreshing and satisfying lunch.

Bonus tip: For added texture and protein, toss in some roasted chickpeas or lentils.

Garlic Herb Pita Bread with Hummus

Warm some whole wheat pita bread and brush it with a mixture of melted butter, olive oil, and dried herbs (rosemary, thyme, or oregano work well). Toast the pita bread in a skillet or oven until slightly crispy. Pack the pita bread alongside a container of your Dad's favourite hummus for a dip-able lunch.

Bonus tip: Spice it up with chopped green chillies or garam masala on the bread.

No-Bake Granola Bars

Combine rolled oats, chopped nuts, fruits, and a touch of honey or maple syrup in a mixing bowl. Press the mixture firmly into a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour, then cut into bars. These delicious snacks are perfect for a midday pick-me-up.

Bonus Tip: Team up with a sibling or partner and turn it into a fun family activity.
