Puree with an immersion blender and pass sauce through a strainer into a clean saucepan. Or pour sauce into a blender or food processor and purge; strain for a very smooth sauce. Whisk in cream and adjust seasonings to taste. Meanwhile, grill or broil chicken, turning once, until well-browned, about 8 minutes in all. To serve, top each chicken breast with sauce and garnish with pistachios and cilantro leaves.
