Course: Main Dish
Servings: 8


  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 frozen turkey breast boneless (approximately 3 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch/arrowroot powder


  • Remove outer coating and netting (if applicable) from the frozen turkey. Carefully remove the gravy packet if your turkey breast comes with one.
  • Pour the broth into the liner of the Instant Pot and add 1/2 half of the gravy packet and stir.
  • Add the trivet and place the turkey breast on the trivet.
  • In a small bowl mix together salt, onion powder, garlic powder, poultry seasoning and thyme. Set aside.
  • Drizzle the top of the breast with the oil and sprinkle seasonings on top. Set the remaining frozen gravy packet on top of the turkey breast.
  • Close the lid of the Instant Pot and place valve in sealed position. Pressure Cook/Manual on High Pressure for 50 minutes.
  • After the cooking time expires, allow for 10 minutes of Natural Pressure Release. Quick release any remaining pressure.
  • Remove the turkey, cover and set aside to rest.
  • Cancel the Keep Warm Function and turn the Instant Pot on Sauté. Remove ¼ cup of the liquid and whisk in 1 tablespoon corn starch or arrowroot powder to make a slurry.
  • Pour the slurry back into the pot and whisk mixture until desired thickness has been reached.
  • Slice turkey breast and pour gravy over top as desired.


If you want to crisp up the skin of the turkey breast, place under a broiler until browned.
