Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Total Time55 mins
- 1 turkey breast defrosted, around 4 lbs. so it will fit
- 1 onion
- 2 large potatoes russet or red, we used large red
- 1.5 c chicken broth
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic salt
Slice your onions and cut your potatoes in half. Place potatoes with the cut side down into your pressure cooker in the middle. Push them together so they form a "trivet" for your turkey breast.
Sprinkle onions around the potatoes.
Rinse your turkey breast off and set it on top of your potatoes. Sprinkle with thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
Pour chicken broth around outside of turkey.
Close pressure cooker lid, shut steam valve. Turn to pressure, high, for 30 minutes. Then allow pot to naturally release steam for 15 minutes. Let out rest of pressure and lift lid carefully.
If you want to brown the top of your turkey breast then remove it from the pot and set aside.
Put potatoes and onions in a bowl to serve, pour broth into a bowl to make gravy.
If you have a Ninja Foodi, place your turkey breast in the air fryer basket it came with, then inside your empty/wiped out pot. (remove red plastic temp piece if your breast has one in it)
Drizzle with your olive oil, sprinkle on garlic salt and close air fryer lid.
Press air crisp, at 390 degrees for 8-10 minutes (10 was the perfect crispness for us). Serve!!
If you do not have this then put your turkey breast in an oven safe dish and put under your broiler for about 5 minutes or until the top is as brown as you'd like it.
