Turkey-Chia Meatballs

Easy and delicious weeknight meal!

You can serve them over zucchini pasta, regular pasta, in lettuce wraps, or on their own!


  • 1 lb. ground turkey breast or chicken breast
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 scallions/green onions (whites)
  • 1 zucchini, shredded
  • 1.5 tsp tamari or low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds





  • Mix all ingredients together until combined
  • Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes;
  • Set the oven to 400 degrees at this time and spray a baking sheet with oil of choice
  • Wet your hands and roll the meat mixture into 1 inch balls, careful to handle them gently. You don’t want to pack them too tight or the meatballs will be too dense.
  • Set in the oven for 8 minutes, turn over and cook another 8 minutes or until done.
  • These go great in lettuce wraps, on top of pasta or zoodles, or on their own!
