  3. Remove baking sheet from oven. Place chicken on the sheet and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Top with tomatoes. 
  4. Broil on one side only, until chicken is no longer pink in center, about 5 to 10 minutes. 
  5. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese.
  6. Once chicken reaches an internal temperature of 75°C / 165°F, remove from oven. Top with basil and sprinkle with bread crumb and cheese mixture. Drizzle with olive oil.
  7. Return to broiler. Cook until bread crumbs and cheese are browned and bubbly, about 2 to 4 minutes. Serve.
