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. 

*In the winter I use my indoor Optigrill for all of my grilling, and I highly recommend it! You can also use a grill pan, which I use for things like meatballs and burgers in the winter!

Once the chicken is grilled, slice each chicken breast and top with the butternut squash and apple bruschetta. Drizzle with the balsamic reduction.
