  • 1 (2lb) bone-in turkey breast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp sage
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp flour

To serve

  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cranberries or cranberry sauce
  • Mashed potatoes


  • Rub olive oil over chicken breast, then rub with paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, rosemary, thyme and sage, then season generously with salt & pepper.
  • Turn Instant Pot to saute mode, then saute turkey breast for 2-3 minutes per side. Turn off saute mode, remove turkey breast, then add trivet. Pour in 1 cup chicken broth then place turkey breast on top of trivet.
  • Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 12 minutes. The Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure, then notify you it's done by beeping.
  • Press the Cancel button then let the Instant Pot do a natural release of the pressure for 10 minutes. Follow by doing a quick release. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Remove turkey breast and trivet, then turn Instant Pot back to saute mode. Meanwhile, broil turkey breast for 2-3 minutes until skin crisps up, watching closely so it doesn't burn.
  • Whisk in butter until melted, then whisk in flour. Pour in remaining cup of chicken broth and whisk to combine, bringing to a boil. Stir until thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve gravy overtop of turkey breast, and serve with desired sides. Enjoy!



NOTE: Pressure cook turkey breast for 6 minutes per pound, with 10 minutes of natural pressure release. Adjust cook time according to how large your breast is.
