  • 1 6-6.5 lb turkey breast thawed (if you try to cook it frozen, it might not fit into the IP)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • Stuffing:
  • 4 cups cubed bread1/4 cup onion diced
  • 1/4 cup onion diced1/4 cup celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup celery diced1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup butter melted1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon thymesalt and pepper
  • salt and pepper


  • Now it is time to make our Instant Pot stuffing!  Place bread, onion and celery into a large mixing bowl. Add sage, thyme and salt and pepper to melted butter and mix well. Pour over bread. Stir well.
  • Stuff stuffing into the turkey breast. The breast is split, so make sure you don't over stuff it so it busts open!
  • Fold a long piece of tin foil in half and place it over the stuffing. Wrap it around the turkey breast and flip it over and place it into the instant pot (stuffing side down).
  • Mix garlic powder, basil, sage, thyme and salt and pepper together. Use a pastry brush to spread butter onto turkey breast. Sprinkle with seasonings. Wrap foil loosely around turkey and fold edges over.
  • Add 1 cup water to the pot and place the lid onto the instant pot and close the pressure valve.
  • Set the Instant Pot to Poultry, high pressure for 35 minutes. Let naturally release for 20-30 minutes. Release pressure valve and open instant pot. Check to see if the turkey has reached 165°. If not, lock the lid in place and cook it for a few more minutes.
  • Unwrap the foil and use it to lift the turkey out of the pot. Remove stuffing and carve turkey breast.  Are you starting to be convinced that this is the best Instant Pot turkey recipe ever?!?!
  • Use remaining juices from Instant Pot to make gravy! You can do this right in the Instant Pot using the saute function. Just skim the fat off the top, add 3 tablespoons cornstarch with 3 tablespoons cold water and add it slowly to the juices.  Let thicken and season to taste.
