SLOW COOKER OPTION:
  1. Place seasoned turkey breast in the slow cooker; cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.
  2. Using a meat thermometer, check for doneness; thermometer should read 160˚F.

  4. Remove from oven and let stand 15 minutes before cutting.

If you would like to cook a larger turkey breast, the general rule of thumb for cooking poultry in the Instant Pot is 6 minutes per pound with a 10 minute Natural Pressure Release (NPR).
