Instructions
• Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Trim the chicken breasts.
• In a small bowl or bag, combine the pistachio nuts and pepper. Brush the chicken breasts with olive oil, then roll them (or shake them if in a bag) in the nut mixture to cover both sides of the chicken.
• Place the chicken breasts in a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes, or until juices run clear and chicken is baked through. Set the time for 25 minutes, then add more time if necessary, so the chicken does not dry out.

Spinach:
• Cut up and sauté onions in a skillet with ½ the butter
• Wait 3-4 min and add the spinach, salt, pepper, cheese and the other ½ of the butter.
• Cook till spinach is wilted and cheese is melted.
