I am cheap. I admit it. I am a hoarder of turkey, ham, and chicken. When I see it on sale I buy it. I can’t help it. I just love to cook big meals for my family it makes me feel great but I hate to pay retail. That brings me to my turkey breast story. I figured out in November you can get Turkey for a lot less. The day after Thanksgiving they mark them down even further. The breasts are so easy to find. What I didn’t know is can you cook a turkey breast in a pressure cooker?
I figured you could since I can cook a whole chicken soup in a pressure cooker. What I wasn’t sure of was how long would it take. I did, however, find out because I needed to make dinner. I intended to cook the turkey breast the normal way in the oven. The problem was my 8 pound Turkey breast was going to take 3.5 hours in the oven. I didn’t have time for that so I decided to try the pressure cooker. I was pleased with my pressure cooker turkey breast recipe. I will tell you the skin doesn’t get crispy like it does in the oven. I was so pressed for time I didn’t throw mine in the oven but I could have on broil for 10-15 minute to crisp it up.

The Gluten Free Instant Pot Chicken Pineapple Taco is an easy meal, and you can control how spicy you make it based on the salsa you select and the taco toppings. I have tried several flavors of salsa, and my family loves when I add mango salsa and my husband loves when I do a spicy variety. I swear he has burned off his taste buds because he likes things hot but the rest of the family doesn’t so I often add a Tablespoon of the hot stuff to top his off and use the medium or the mild in the pressure cooker taco recipe below.
I should also note that you can use pork instead of chicken but the cooking times will be different since pork takes longer to cook than chicken does. We all like an easy pressure cooker chicken recipes so let me share this one.
