Place meatball ingredients into a large mixing bowl. NOTE: Chia seeds help meatball ingredients bind together (without using eggs). Mix all the ingredients together using your hands (or fork), until fully combined. Cover bowl, and refrigerate for 30 minutes, to let chia seeds "gel" ingredients.
Preheat oven to 400° F. and line a 13x9 inch baking sheet with parchment paper. To make meatballs: place a heaping Tablespoon of turkey mixture into your hands, and gently roll between both hands into a meatball. As you finish rolling each meatball, place it onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Be sure to leave space between meatballs. This recipe yields about 18 meatballs. PLEASE NOTE: Recipe, as written, yields 3 servings (with 3 meatballs per serving). You will have leftover meatballs. You can freeze leftover baked meatballs OR you can double the amount of zucchini and glaze used, in order to make 6 servings (3 meatballs each).
Place the meatballs into preheated 400° F oven. Set a timer for 10 minutes, and bake. After meatballs have baked for 10 minutes, remove from oven and quickly turn each one to other side. Pop 'em back into oven and continue baking for another 10 minutes. When done, meatballs should be cooked all the way through, and will be nice and golden brown on the outside. Remove from oven.
While meatballs are baking, whisk glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside. While meatballs are baking, spiralize 3 zucchini into spaghetti-style noodles, then "trim" the noodles into smaller lengths. Blot the zoodles semi-"dry", using paper towels. This helps absorb a lot of their natural moisture. Set aside.
Pour glaze into a large skillet. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Let it cook until it thickens a bit (about a minute), stirring often. Add half of the meatballs (9) to skillet, and stir gently, to cover with glaze. Push meatballs to one side of skillet, then add zucchini noodles. Stir, to cover with glaze. Cook for 4-5 minutes (al dente), then it's ready to serve!
To serve, divide zucchini noodles onto 3 plates; top each serving with 3 meatballs. ENJOY!
NOTE: Since the recipe only utilizes HALF of the meatballs made, it is very easy to freeze them, to use the next time you make this recipe!
