  • Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  • Slice the leeks in half lengthwise. Rinse them, fanning out the outer layers to wash away any grit. Slice the cleaned leeks into thin half-moons.
  • Remove the greens from the beets. Rinse them and coarsely chop. Halve the beets and cut each section into four wedges.
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the leeks, beets, and beet greens together with the garlic, 1/2 of the turmeric, ginger, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil until thoroughly combined. Spoon the mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish(s) or casserole pan and arrange in an even layer
  • Add the chicken and the remaining turmeric to a large mixing bowl and toss to coat. Transfer the chicken legs to the baking dish and nestle in the beet mixture.
  • Drizzle any of the remaining marinade over the top of the chicken and pour the chicken broth around the sides of the dish.
  • Roast, uncovered, until the chicken is fork tender and the beets are soft, about 1 hour.
