  • 4 pounds turkey breast (boneless)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons thyme leaves (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary leaves (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (coarse grind)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (or ghee)
  • 1 cup chicken stock (unsalted or low sodium)
  • Optional: sprigs of rosemary and thyme

For the Gravy:

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)


  1. Pat the turkey breast with paper towels to dry; do not remove the netting.
  2. Peel the garlic; mince or put it through a garlic press. Transfer the garlic to a small bowl and add the paprika, minced thyme, minced rosemary, pepper, and kosher salt. Mix thoroughly. Rub the turkey breast all over with the garlic and spice mixture.
  3. Select the high sauté setting on the Instant Pot and add the olive oil or ghee. Place the turkey breast in the Instant Pot and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, turning to brown all sides. Alternatively, sear the turkey breast in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Remove the turkey breast to a plate and place the rack in the Instant Pot. Add the chicken stock to the pot along with a few sprigs of herbs, if desired. Return the turkey breast to the Instant Pot.
  5. Lock the lid in place and ensure the vent is set to "sealing." Choose the manual setting; adjust the pressure to high and set the time for 35 minutes. When the time is up, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. Check the temperature of the turkey with an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center. If the turkey is not at least 165 F, lock the lid in place and continue to cook it for a few more minutes. Remove the turkey breast to a platter; tent with foil and keep warm.
