Instant Pot Turkey

  • 1 ½ cups poultry stock
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ T. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. poultry seasoning
  • ½ tsp. granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp. smoked paprika
  • 6-7 pound bone-in turkey breast
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 orange, quartered

Add the stock to the bottom of Instant Pot insert. Put the trivet that came with the Instant Pot in the bottom of the insert.

In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the spices.

Remove the gravy packet or anything from inside the turkey cavity. Using your fingers, carefully loosen the skin from the turkey. Rub the mayonnaise mixture evenly above and beneath the turkey skin.

Put the onion and orange quarters inside the cavity and carefully place the turkey into the Instant Pot breast side up on top of the trivet.

Close the lid, make sure pressure valve is closed, and set the pressure cooker to manual high pressure for 30 to 35 minutes. After the timer beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes. Then turn the valve to open and let pressure quick release. Using the trivet, carefully remove the turkey from the pot and slice as desired. If you want a crisper skin, remove the turkey breast to a broiler proof pan and brown under the broiler for 5 or so minutes or until the skin is browned and crisp. This step can also be done on a grill.
