Instant Pot Frozen Turkey Breast

How to make a moist and delicious turkey breast in the Instant Pot without thawing!


  • 1 frozen turkey breast 7 pounds
  • 1 cup turkey or chicken broth
  • 1 ½ teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper

For Browning

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  • If your frozen turkey breast comes with a gravy packet, thaw it just enough to remove the gravy packet.
  • Pour the broth in the liner of the Instant Pot.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the breast with the poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Place the turkey in the Instant Pot, breast side up.
  • Lock the lid and place the valve in the Sealing position. Pressure Cook/Manual on HIGH pressure for 45 minutes.
  • Once the cooking time expires, allow the pot to natural pressure release for at least 10 minutes.
  • Using a digital thermometer, test the internal temperature. The turkey is cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
  • If it is not done, place back in the Instant Pot and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Again, allowing the pot to natural pressure release for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the turkey breast and brush skin with olive oil. Place under the broiler to crisp until desired color is reached. *If you have a Ninja Foodi Multi-cooker, remove the turkey breast and place in the crisper basket. Place the liquid in a small stockpot and set aside. Air Crisp on 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.
  • Use the liquid to make the gravy or place the gravy packet inside the liner of the Instant Pot and place on Saute function. Stir until thickened desired is reached.
