Servings 8 servings


  • 6 to 7 pound turkey breast thawed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sage ground or rubbed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup turkey broth or stock chicken broth/stock can be used


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon cream or half and half


  • Combine the salt, pepper, sage, and garlic powder in a small bowl to create seasoning rub.
  • Coat the entire turkey breast with olive oil, then rub the seasoning mix over the turkey. 
  • Pour 1 cup of turkey stock or broth into the instant pot, then place trivet into the instant pot.
  • Place the prepared turkey breast onto the trivet, with the skin side up.
  • Set the instant pot to cook for 40 minutes* on high power.  When done cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally. Depending on your Instant Pot, this could take anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes, so make sure to factor that into your time. Remove the turkey from the pot and keep covered with foil until ready to serve. 


  • Place butter in a small microwave-safe bowl, and heat until just melted. Add flour to the melted butter and stir until well combined. It will be very thick. Turn on the saute function of the instant pot. Gradually add flour and butter mixture while whisking constantly.  Cook for 3-5 minutes.  Stir in the cream, then turn off the heat.  Whisk occasionally, it will thicken as it cools.


*Depending on your Instant Pot, the time it takes to build up and release pressure could take anywhere from an additional 10 to 40 minutes, so make sure to factor that into your time.
Turkey is fully cooked when a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees fahrenheit.
