  2. Flip the chicken a few times to fully coat and cook on HIGH manual pressure for 8 minutes with quick release. (Try to get your pieces of chicken relatively the same size and thickness for even cooking.)

  3. Transfer the cooked chicken to a bowl to shred and use the sauté function to thicken the remaining sauce, if necessary. As long as the chicken isn't completely runny when filling the enchiladas, it's fine.
