6 to 7 lb. Turkey Breast
1 1/2 Cups Chicken or Turkey Stock
1/2 Cup White Wine (optional)
1 Sweet Onion, roughly cut
4 stalks Celery, roughly cut
1 stick Butter, softened (not melted)

1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Seasoning Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1/2 tsp. Poultry Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/2 to 1/4 tsp. Ground Red Pepper
1/2 tsp. Dried Basil
1/2 tsp. Dried Parsley

Remove gravy packet or anything from inside turkey cavity. Rinse turkey breast and pat dry with paper towels.

Add stock and wine into Instant Pot (6 quart). Put in trivet that came with instant pot.

In a bowl mix spices. Take 1/2 of butter and rub on top of turkey skin. Using fingers carefully loosen skin from the turkey. Rub remaining butter and half of spices under skin. Sprinkle remaining spices onto top of buttered skin.

Put vegetables inside cavity and carefully place turkey into Instant Pot, breast side up.

Close lid, make sure pressure valve is closed and set pressure cooker to manual high pressure for 30 to 35 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. Then turn the valve to open and let pressure quick release.

Remove from Instant Pot and serve as desired.

Make sure to check turkey with an instant read thermometer and it should be 165 degrees. If is isn't replace lid and cook a few more minutes. If you want a really crispy skin you can place on a baking sheet and put under oven broiler, but make sure to keep an eye on it.

If you are using a single breast, put veggies in the bottom, underneath the breast.
