How To Make Instant Pot Turkey Breast

As if you need another reason to love your Instant Pot, this recipe is going to make you love it even more! Here’s how to make a juicy bone-in turkey breast in the Instant Pot.

Raw seasoned turkey breast in an Instant Pot

The first step is to season your turkey breast.

Rub the bone-in turkey breast with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning all over. I prefer to buy pre-made Italian seasoning because it saves me lots of time.

If you want to make your own, just mix together the following herbs:

  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Rosemary
  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Red Chili Flakes
  • Garlic Powder

If the turkey breast is labeled as “brined” or “oven-ready”, omit the salt as it’s already been salted.

Next, insert the trivet in the Instant Pot and add water. Put the seasoned bone-in turkey breast on the trivet.

Close the lid of the Instant Pot and turn the valve to a sealing position.

Press the “Pressure Cook” button and set the time to 40 minutes on high pressure. This is when the magic happens!

When the Instant Pot is done cooking, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then quick release (QR) the remaining steam.

Finally, remove the cooked bone-in turkey breast from the Instant Pot, slice, and serve.

What To Serve With Turkey Breast

This turkey breast is the perfect main course for holiday dinners. It’s also a really fun and different meat to serve for dinner (and break up the usual pork or chicken options).

Save time and make this make-ahead turkey gravy to pour on top of it. On the side, I would make some easy smashed potatoes with fresh herbs. Then, you can pour the gravy right on top of both of them!

Don’t forget your veggies! Make some oven-roasted rainbow veggies for a healthy and beautiful side dish.
