1. Grilled Chicken

Is your dad a fitness buff? This grilled chicken dish is perfect for Father’s Day.

Thanks to a special sauce, it’s super-nutritious without sacrificing taste.

The marinade is made from a mixture of sugar, Italian seasoning and curry powder.

This seasoning combination makes grilled chicken party-worthy.

Serve grilled poultry with brown rice, or wheat pasta to make a healthy and hearty meal.

2. Peanut Butter Burger

What? Peanut butter on a burger?! This may sound strange, but it is utterly delicious.

It’s the perfect gift for any dad who is willing to experiment!

You ask, what does peanut butter add to a burger? It’s not that big. It makes it 100 times better.

A spoonful of peanut-butter gives your burger a creamy, rich and nutty flavor. No other ingredient can do that.

3. Steak with Garlic butter

Nothing beats steak for the traditional dad.

It is brave to cook steaks for my dad, who is very particular about his steaks.

It’s true that the perfect finishedness is difficult to achieve, but you can do it with ease if you use some handy tips and tricks.

The garlic butter sauce added to the top of the steak gives it a richer flavor.

4. Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza

This mashup of flavors will be perfect for your dad if he is a BBQ and pizza fan.

We’re changing things up and using BBQ sauce in place of marinara.

We use chicken breasts and bacon for the meat. Both pair beautifully with the sweet-smoky sauce.

Toppings include tomatoes, bell peppers and onions.

This pizza is bursting with flavor.

5. Sauteed Mushrooms With Garlic Butter

Is your dad a beer drinker? Sauteed mushroom with garlic butter is the perfect beer pairing!

The combination of earthy mushrooms and butter is a delicious one.

Sauteed garlic is a must-have for this dish. It tastes amazing with beer.

This dish can be served as-is or used to top steaks, grilled chicken or even a salad.

6. Butter Chicken

The combination of chicken and butter is always a winner. Murgh makhani is a good example.

The traditional Indian dish, samosa, is a favorite around the globe.

The aroma of a rich, spicy, and tender curry sauce with juicy, tender chicken is unbeatable.

You don’t have to be an expert in cooking to make butter-chicken. This recipe is easy to follow and suitable for beginners.

7. Brown Sugar Steaks

You can give the classic steak an earthy and sweet twist.

This steak recipe may not be to the taste of purists, but that doesn’t matter to me. You’ll love it if you try it.

The secret to a great marinade is brown sugar, onion, parsley and paprika.

The special blend adds a hint of sweetness and spice to the steak.

8. Chicken Piccata

It may sound fancy, but it’s actually quite simple. This recipe is so easy to make. It’s okay if Dad doesn’t know!

A lemon butter sauce spiked with cayenne pepper makes fried chicken cutlets even more delicious.

This lemon butter sauce has a ridiculously good taste. It’s impossible to not love this sauce, when it contains butter, lemon juice and white wine.

9. Cream Cheese Chicken

By its name, I know this dish is going to be a big hit.

This might be the dish to finally convince my father that I am his favorite child.

It’s easy to make. Winner!

The chicken is coated in a creamy cheese mixture, topped with mozzarella and baked until it’s perfect.

This dish is heavenly. Delicious does not even begin to describe it.

10. Shrimp with Creamy Tomato Garlic Butter

My dad loves any dish that involves shrimp.

Imagine his reaction as the tomato garlic butter shrimp aroma hits his nose.

The pasta is coated in a creamy sauce marinara, mixed with buttery shrimp and topped off with parmesan. It’s a very happy Father’s Day.

11. A1 Steak Sauce

Why pay for expensive steak sauce when it’s easy to make at home? It’s also a lot less expensive!

Even the worst-cooked steaks will taste delicious with this copycat recipe for A1 Steak Sauce.

Don’t worry if you did not do a great job cooking the steak.

You will be forgiven if you use this sauce.

12. Shrimp with Cream Sauce

Even by itself, shrimp gets a 10/10. Its sweetness is matched only by its crunchy, yet firm consistency.

Imagine that delicious seafood flavor covered in a creamy, rich sauce. It’s amazing, isn’t?

What do you get when you serve it over pasta or rice? Perfection in a dish.

13. Steak salad with Dijon balsamic dressing

This dish is perfect for Father’s Day because my dad will only eat a salad if there is steak in it.

It’s a super-meaty dish, but at least it is loaded with vegetables.

That’s what I would call a perfectly-balanced meal.

14. French Onion Soup

My dad doesn’t like soup, but he does enjoy this particular one.

French onion soup has a sweet and savory base, caramelized sweet onions, toasted toast, and melted cheese.

Who better than Julia Child to give you a classic French dish?

This is her recipe, and it’s so good that dad will eat it.

15. Vegetable Cheddar Cheese Soup

Although this soup is loaded with vegetables, it has a delicious flavor.

It is ultra-rich, creamy and rich.

What is the best way to improve any soup? Simple: cheese.

The cheddar cheese in this soup makes it taste bland, even though the soup contains broccoli, carrots and zucchini.
