- 4 tbsp olive oil (divided)
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp kosher salt (divided)
- 1 tsp black pepper (divided)
- 7 cloves garlic (minced) – (divided)
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups diced butternut squash
- 1 cup diced apples
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
- ¼ tsp allspice
- ¼ tsp ground cloves
- 6-8 fresh sage leaves (chopped)
- 2 tbsp balsamic glaze
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Combine 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, ½ tsp kosher salt, ½ tsp black pepper and 3 cloves minced garlic in a small bowl.
Add this mixture to a large plastic bag with the chicken breasts and place in the refrigerator.
Toss the butternut squash and apples with the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil, 4 cloves minced garlic, ½ tsp kosher salt, ½ tsp black pepper, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves and sage.
Place in an even layer on a baking sheet and into the oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the refrigerator. Take the chicken out of the marinade and place on a grill* over medium heat for 10-12 minutes per side.
Once the chicken is grilled, slice each chicken breast and top with the butternut squash and apple bruschetta, then drizzle with the balsamic glaze.
