How would you stir it in a pressure cooker?

One of the many reasons you can't stir fry in a pressure cooker.

Just because you could cook something in a PC doesn't men you should. Most of the work and time in doing a stir fry is in the preparation of the ingredients. Lots of chopping, slicing marinating. The cooking is very quick over high heat. I think a PC would actually take longer than a wok for a stir fry. By the time you got it up to pressure, cooked it and depressurized it, the meal cooked in the wok would be done.

Every time I see the title of this thread I am reminded of a story. A friend of mine cooked a whole chicken in a pressure cooker. They left it on too long. The pressure built up to the point that the safety valve flew off. The entire chicken, bones and all, flew out through that little hole and embedded itself in the ceiling.

As far as the preliminary browning of the chicken is concerned, you are doing it for flavour not to cook it so just do it as it needs then proceed with the rest of the recipe.

As for stir fry in a p/cooker. The pan base is very deep so wouldn't be very conducive to stir frying (too much steam around the food) even with the lid off and when the lid is on the contents would steam rather than fry.

This might have been an old thread, but it sure was a fun read.
