How to Cook Turkey Breast on an Instant Pot?

Have in mind that you can cook the below recipe on any electric pressure cooker such as Instant Pot, but at the same time, Cuisinart, Pressure Cooker Xl, Ninja Foodi, or whatever brand you have at home.

By using an Instant Pot to Cook the Turkey you will have the best housing for cooking your turkey in the pot.

If it’s your first time cooking a turkey in your pressure cooker, be sure to be chill before to start is not a long process but you need to pay attention.

Before preparing the turkey breast, check to make sure it fits inside your Instant Pot. We used the 8 quarts Instant Pot but you can use the 6 quarts as well. But be sure to check the size before you buy the Turkey Breast.

How long Should I Cook the Turkey Breast in the Instant Pot?

The cooking time for your Instant Pot Turkey Breast will vary depending on the weight and the thickness of the bird.

For those cooking a turkey that has a bone the weight of the turkey breast will generally determine the cooking time.

You need to cook it for 30 minutes and then let it press release naturally for another 10 more minutes if you would like to cook a 6-pound bone-in, skin-on turkey breast.

For a 3 to 4 pounds bone-in turkey breast you will need to cook it for 25 minutes.

For a 4 to 5 pounds bone-in turkey breast you will need to cook it for 27 minutes.

Now If you are cooking a boneless turkey breast, the thickest part of the breast will determine the cooking time.

Boneless breasts can vary in shape. If your turkey breast is long and skinny, your cook time will be less. However, if your breast is more rounded, you’ll need a longer cook time.

You need to cook it for 30 minutes and then let it press release naturally for another 10 more minutes just like with the bone-in timing.
