CrockPot or Instant Pot Turkey Breast is delicious any time of year so don’t wait for Thanksgiving to make this for a family friendly dinner! And turkey breast in the slow cooker or Instant Pot is a great option if you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner for a smaller group.
I couldn’t let Thanksgiving season go by without updating this post to remind you of about my favorite CrockPot or Instant Pot Turkey Breast from Kalyn’s Kitchen. Turkey breast is a healthy option but it can be tricky to get it cooked perfectly without the meat drying out. For this CrockPot or Instant Pot Turkey Breast, using a slow cooker or cooking quickly in the Instant Pot keeps the breast meat moist and browning the turkey first and then cooking it with carrots, celery, onions, and turkey or chicken stock provides great flavor. There are also instructions for making lower-carb and gluten-free turkey gravy for those who are interested.
What Ingredients do you need for this recipe?
- turkey breast with skin and bones (thawed in refrigerator, if frozen)
- dried ground thyme
- dried sage
- olive oil
- chicken or turkey stock or broth
- arrowroot starch (if making lower-carb gravy)
Why is this recipe a favorite for me?
I love turkey dinner and cooking a turkey breast in the Instant Pot or the slow cooker makes this a great dinner idea you can make any time of year!
Recommended Slow Cooker or Instant Pot Size:
I made this turkey breast in my 6 Quart Ninja Cooker, which gave plenty of room for vegetables to add flavor to the gravy, but you can get away with a smaller slow cooker if that’s what you have. I used a Six Quart Instant Pot for the Instant Pot version. (affiliate links)
