  • Spray corn tortillas on both sides with cooking oil and sprinkle salt lightly on one side.

  • After 3 minutes, carefully flip and move the top tortilla to the bottom position and flip and move the bottom tortilla to the top position. When program is complete, repeat with remaining tortillas. Be sure to always place the hot lid on the protective pad. 
  • Remove the Air Fryer Basket and set aside.
  • Add pineapple juice, salsa, lime juice and zest, garlic powder and onion powder to the Instant Pot. Stir, and add chicken, turning once to coat.
  • Secure the Pressure Cooking Lid. Using the display panel select the PRESSURE COOK function. Adjust the time to 10 minutes, then select START. 
  • When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
