This Instant Pot Turkey Breast is the easiest way to cook turkey, and it essentially makes the gravy at the same time! This is the perfect no-fuss and healthy holiday recipe that is gluten-free, paleo, and Whole30.




  1. Add the broth to the base of a 6-quart of 8-quart Instant Pot pressure cooker. Place the metal trivet on top.
  2. Next, add the turkey breast on top of the trivet.
  3. Use your hands or a spoon to spread the ghee or butter on top. Sprinkle on the dried herb seasoning.
  4. Lock on the lid and push the button for pressure cooking. Set the time to 40 minutes.
  5. Once the cooking time is complete, let the pressure come down naturally or use the quick-release method.
  6. Use tongs to carefully remove the turkey breast to a serving platter.
  7. To make the gravy, you need to strain the broth left in the pot. Use a clean stainless colander to strain the gravy.
  8. Then, pour the strained gravy back into the Instant Pot and push the button for sauté. Once the gravy is simmering, add the arrowroot powder and use a whisk to combine.
  9. Keep whisking the gravy for a few minutes until the flour has dissolved. Let the pot simmer for about 10 minutes to thicken the gravy.
  10. Pour the gravy into a serving bowl and serve alongside the turkey.


  1. You can store any leftover cooked turkey in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
