One of my favorite ways to cook a moist, tender turkey breast for a main course or for sandwiches. Even though in a pressure cooker the skin doesn't get crispy, using this method it does become a beautiful golden brown as shown in the second photo.

Recipe made using a 3 qt. electric pressure cooker.

Here is my recipe for Honey Browned Butter Dill Carrots, as shown-
