Step 1Brine turkey breast in cool water and kosher salt for 4 – 6 hours (can also go as long as overnight).
Step 2To brine, place thawed turkey breast in a large bowl. Set aside.
Step 3Mix eight cups of cool water with 1/4 cup kosher salt. Stir till dissolved.
Step 4Pour salt/water mixture over turkey breast until turkey breast is covered. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to cook.
Step 5When ready to cook, take turkey breast out of the brine. Discard brine.
Step 6Pat turkey dry with paper towels and remove and discard skin. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Step 7Pour apple cider and bullion in the bottom of Instant Pot, place steaming rack inside, and put seasoned turkey breast on top.
Step 8Lock lid, select the Meat function, and set timer for 45 minutes.
Step 9Quick release value after the timer beeps and remove the turkey breast from the cooker. Place on a foil-lined cookie sheet and brush barbecue sauce on the meat side of the breast.
