Here’s how to make tender and juicy Instant Pot Turkey Tenderloins. Easily slice and serve your boneless turkey for Thanksgiving or any other occasion. This is a great meal prep recipe since you can use the leftovers for sandwiches or salads.

  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 12ounce turkey tenderloins (or boneless turkey breasts or boneless chicken breasts)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano or Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup water (for cooking)


  1. Pat both sides of the turkey tenderloin dry with a clean paper towel.
  2. Then, use your hands or a pastry brush to coat both sides of the turkey with the olive oil.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the dried oregano, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and then sprinkle on top of the turkey.
  4. Place the trivet in a 6-quart Instant Pot and add a cup of water.
  5. Place the turkey tenderloins on top of the trivet.
  6. Lock on the lid and set the time to 10 minutes at high pressure.
