Shortcut: 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash garlic and herb salt-free seasoning can be substituted for paprika and garlic powder.
You can also just rub olive oil on the turkey skin and sprinkle the spices and salt on the skin.

I made this for dinner tonight. Excellent and easy recipe! The only thing I did differently was to add a few sprigs of fresh thyme. Turkey breast was very moist.
Steve I’m so glad you tried it and like it!
How many pounds of turkey were cooked? Would one adjust cook time based on weight? Thank you.
7 lbs of turkey breast were used. IF you are using more or less weight than the recipe calls for you may have to adjust time. Always ensure the meat has been cooked to a safe temperature. If under cooked cook a little longer, starting with 5 minutes as it will cook more while pressuring again.
Followed recipe without changing a thing. Came out very moist and everyone liked it.
I am confused by place trivet in pot ? Thank you
The trivet is the metal “Steam rack” that came with the Instant Pot Multi-Use Pressure Cooker. You still use the inner pot and place the trivet inside so food items do not touch the bottom of the inner pot.
Will make looks delishes
The best turkey my family has ever had! Just missing the crisp skin.
To get a crispy skin, you can use your ovens broiler and broil the meat for a couple of minutes on each side. It is a similar technique to a reverse sear.
I am signed, but can’t see recipe????
You have to use the tabs at the bottom of the selected recipe to switch between ingredients and instructions.
Made this tonight I had hoped to have some left over to put on a salad for lunches tomorrow, nope its all gone. My husband and daughter came back for seconds and as I was placing Turkey in container for later they kept comming by to steel it as I picked the ribs clean! My daughter asked if I will make it again for her birthday in 2 weeks! Thank you so much!
Thx sooooo good! My daughter asked for it again for her birthday!
Please provide a minutes per pound to cook in case the size of the turkey breast is different. This seems elemental.
I thought this came out excellent. It wasn’t very pretty coming out with the skin on but I didnt bother to broil it since I remove the skin anyway. Meat was super tender and juicy.
I have only a 4 lb frozen bone in turkey breast. How long should I cook it? I am very, very new to this.
M. Gretz – the following site shows how to cook a 5 lb bone-in turkey breast that might be helpful – https://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/instant-pot-bone-in-turkey-breast-video/
M. Gretz, So glad you are trying my recipe! I recommend setting the time to 28 minutes for a 4 pound bone-in turkey breast. Let us know if this works for you if you try it again!
How long should i cook a turkey that is a little over 6.5 pounds?
This turkey came out tender and juicy, i am very happy with the result
What size Instant Pot was used for this recipe? I have a 6 quart Instant Pot. I bought a 6.94 lb. turkey breast.
Hi June! So glad you are going to try my recipe! I have the 6 qt 7 in 1 Instant Pot. Up to a 7lb will fit! Of course, an 8 qt will have more “leg room”. Lol
I tried your recipe, so good and easy! Now when I cook a whole chicken I calculate 6 minutes per pound. So for the 6.94 lb. I selected Manual then 41 minutes on High Pressure, then NR.. I used an instant-read thermometer to check the temp, it was good. my dog (Sunny) is going crazy from the aroma of the turkey, Thanks! I did omit the onion, just used Nature’s seasoning with the butter.
Used some of the leftover turkey made turkey veggie soup with broth, celery, carrots, and white beans, topped with chopped green onions, so good!
I’m so glad you added your own seasonings and made it your own! I found 32 minutes for a 7 pound bone-in turkey breast was perfect for me. I wish you the best Thanksgiving!
Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving! When I cook the turkey breast (any size up to 7 pounds) in the 6 quart IP, I guess 5 minutes per pound would be closer to the time to use.
Hi i have two 3 pound boneless turkey breasts. Would you recommend any modifications to this recipe to achieve the same delicious results as other reviewers are reporting? Thanks!
The general rule of thumb for cooking poultry in the Instant Pot is is 6 minutes per pound with a 10 minute NPR (Natural Pressure Release).
I needed a quick & rather easy recipe for cooking a turkey today for my family’s Thanksgiving Dinner. This recipe was just that! And my entire family loved the turkey. There was no turkey or gravy left. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe. I will be making it again!
Don’t know how to put in manual mode to cook a turkey breast
I don’t know how to put it on manual then place on hi and that it heats up 12 to 20 minutes and then it cooks for 32 minutes. I have an 8.28 lb. Turkey breast. Help please
I had two 3 pound boneless turkey breasts with skin in the net. I doubled the butter and spices. Took the net off, rubbed under the skin then put the net back and rubbed the rest on the skin with net on. Both pieces fir into my instant pot. Cooked on High for 36 and natural release (ended up being about 50 minutes). Then broiled and amazing! Thank you for the recipe!
If I wanted to use a pre cooked turkey how long would I cook it for?
Thank you for the recipe! I use a silicone trivet and it’s much better than the metal trivet that came with the instant pot. I got it on Amazon: https://amzn.to/35LvU9n
Manual mode is the same as the “Pressure Cook” button.
That’s awesome! So glad to hear the gravy was a hit, too!
Why can’t we save these recipe to our Pinterest ??
Thank you Sue!
Easy…tasted great. .husband loved the tender Turkey and flavorful gravy..making this again tonight..
Just made this recipe. One of the best turkey breast i have made. The meat was juicey, the gravy was wonderful. My husband and i could not stop eating it. Will definitely make this again.
I have an 8 quart Duo Instant Pot, with 8.34 pound bone in turkey breast. Could you please advise how much liquid to use, cook time and natural release time?
Thank you so very much!
Nanny B So glad you are going to make the Instant Pot Turkey Breast with Gravy! I have only made it with 7 pound turkey breasts in a 6 quart Instant Pot but my guess is the liquid and natural release time will stay the same but the time will need to increase a little. The time for a 7 pound turkey breast is 32 minutes which is an average of about 4 minutes per pound, so I would try adding 4 minutes for the 8 pound turkey. I would love to hear in the comments how this turns out for you!
Easy recipe. Fast and makes the moistest turkey breast I have ever had. First used a 10 lb breast. Only added 5 minutes extra time. So yummy
Kathleen I miss seeing you on channel 6 in the mornings ! I have 9.5 lb bone in turkey breast. I have the duo instant pots . I want to know if you can air fry the turkey breast like you do a whole 4 lb chicken or do you not recommend it
This tasted great! The broiling trick didnt work, but there wasn’t much skin on the turkey breast, so it didn’t matter. One tip: put the broth, rack and veggies into the pot before you start working with the meat. Once you coat the turkey with butter, it should go right into the pot.
Can I use a frozen turkey breast and adjust the time cooked?
I make this all the time. Probably way more than I should. Oh my god it is so good. I use the Mrs Dash shown in the notes, but add way more than a teaspoon, more like a tablespoon and I also don’t remove any leftover water or anything else. I just emulsion blender all of it until smooth after adding the starch mixture. Thank you so much for this.
How long do I cook my boneless turkey breast?
I followed this recipe to the letter using a 5 1/2 pound bone in turkey breast. It was not cooked all the way. My meat thermometer only measured 140 degrees. I was so disappointed. It ruined my dinner.
How long do I cook a 7lb whole turkey breast in the instant pot
This recipe is EXCELLENT!!! You can use any herbs you prefer. I used rosemary, thyme, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. The gravy it makes is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I used 2 cups of chicken broth and 3 tbls. cornstarch w/1 tbls. water. Try it, you won’t be sorry. Super easy too!
