Turmeric brewed chicken with golden beets and leeks is a flavorful dish layered with vegetables and spices, covered with wine and baked in a casserole dish. What comes out of the oven once it's done is the most incredible, tasting chicken dish. A rich, golden broth with the perfect balance of flavor that makes you want to lick the bottom of the bowl. That's it good!
Golden beets, turmeric – I just love the colors in this dish! And the flavors were balanced and so flavorful, I made this two nights in a row! This dish is from Phoebe Lapine, author of the Wellness Project, a book that chronicles her journey to cure her autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis) while finding a balance in making a number of lifestyle changes. Her book has practical tips on fitness, sleep, relaxation, hormones and cooking tips. There are even 22 anti-inflammatory recipes for better digestion, clearer skin and a thriving thyroid, including this one.
I enjoyed this recipe as it is. But if you want to swap the beets for another vegetable, I think potatoes would work well too. You can easily change this to a full 30 by swapping wine for chicken broth.
Turmeric brisket chicken with golden beets and leeks
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour
Total time: 1 hour and 20 minutes
Turmeric brisket chicken with golden beets and leeks is layered with spices, covered with wine and baked in a casserole dish.
- 2 leeks, only white and pale green parts
- 1 bundle, 4 golden beets with their green, scrubbed
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 tsp ground turmeric, divided
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1-1 / 2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 skinless chicken drumsticks on the bone
- 4 skinless chicken thighs on the bone
- 1/2 cup white wine, switch to chicken broth for whole30 / paleo
Preheat oven to 425 ° F.
Cut the leeks in half lengthwise. Rinse them, rinsing the outer layers to wash away any grain. Cut the cleaned leeks into thin crescents.
Remove the greens from the beets. Rinse them and chop roughly. Halve the beets and cut each section into four wedges.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the leeks, beets and sugar beets along with garlic, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, ginger, salt, lemon juice and olive oil until thoroughly combined. Pour the mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish or casserole and place in an even layer.
Add the chicken and the other teaspoon of turmeric to the mixing bowl and toss to coat the remaining turmeric mixture. Transfer the chicken legs to the baking sheet and nestle in the beet mixture.
Sprinkle one of the remaining marinades over the top of the chicken and pour the wine around the sides of the bowl.
Roast, uncovered, until the chicken is fork-tender and the beets are soft, about 1 hour.
