Cooking Tandoori Chicken using NEFF technology

Imagine tender slices of tandoori chicken resting on a bed of crunchy roti bread – a dish that tantalizes the taste buds.

The NEFF CircoRoast and VarioSteam* features guarantee chicken that is succulent and juicy, complemented by the tangy sweetness of mango chutney and the soothing coolness of natural yogurt, inviting diners to indulge in a saucy adventure.

Dress the roti with a generous helping of crisp salad, add the chicken, and liberally apply the sauce. For an enhanced taste experience, it's advisable to let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for the entire night.

Recipe by Bridget O’Connor

Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Serves: 4

  • 3 chicken breast fillets, approximately 750g
  • 1/3 cup tandoori paste
  • 1/3 cup natural yogurt
  • 8 Roti bread
  • 3 cups salad greens
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • ½ cup coriander leaves
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Mango chutney
  • Natural yoghurt

Make deep incisions into the chicken breast fillets with a sharp knife. Combine the tandoori paste & the yogurt in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and turn to coat well.

Preheat oven on CircoRoast to 200˚C with medium steam. Line the universal pan with baking paper and place a wire rack on top. Insert the MultiPoint MeatProbe horizontally into the largest chicken breast. Place the tray on shelf 4 and set the probe to 71˚C (see note if you do not have a MeatProbe).

When the chicken is cooked, remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

While chicken is resting, pan fry the roti breads. Arrange the salad greens and cucumber on the roti bread. Top with sliced chicken and remaining ingredients.


Chicken breast can marinate for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator to improve the flavour. If you do not have a MultiPoint MeatProbe you can still make this recipe, just ensure the chicken is cooked.

Enjoy your meal!

*We recommend: NEFF VarioSteam. This feature adds moisture to your food while baking, making it tender inside and crispy outside.
