Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
In a large bowl, combine ingredients for meatballs. Shape chicken or turkey mixture into balls using 1/8th cup per ball (or ¼ cup and split into two balls). Place meatballs on the baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until cooked through. Set aside and keep warm.
In a medium bowl, stir together apple and 1 tsp fresh lemon juice for slaw. Add in fennel and parsley. Stir to combine.
In a separate small bowl, stir together remaining lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, onion, apple cider vinegar, and green onion. Pour over apple fennel mixture. Toss to combine.
Serve meatballs warm, topped with apple fennel slaw.
Alternate Instant Pot Method for Meatballs:
Cook meatballs instant pot for 9 minutes on manual high pressure - if you increase/bulk cook the recipe, you will need to increase the cooking time to make sure all the meatballs are cooked through. To keep them moist, I’d suggest using the steamer grate with ½-1” water under the great and the meatballs on top.
You can also turn these into patties! Simply split the chicken/turkey mixture into two patties instead of small balls. Brown on both sides in a skillet, then bake as instructed above.
You can make these meatballs ahead of time and freeze them. Place them frozen on the baking sheet and add 10 minutes to the baking time.
The apple fennel slaw can be made and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
