Cheese Stuffed, Horseradish Cheddar Pistachio Crusted Chicken Breasts with a Spinach Pesto

This is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever made.  It combines a variety of flavors I was afraid wouldn’t work into one incredibly harmonious hunk of meat.  It has horseradish, pistachios, raw spinach, cheese, chicken, etc.  All together combining sweet, savory, and spicy.  The meat itself ended up being tender and juicy, the outside crunchy and flavorful.  If you don’t try this, I don’t think you’ll be allowed in heaven.  That’s right, start cooking!
