Bruschetta Chicken

adapted from Taste of Home

1 egg, slightly beaten
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup dry bread crumbs
1 Tbsp butter, melted (I used a little olive oil)
2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
3 Tbsp minced fresh basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper

Place egg in a shallow bowl. Combine the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and butter. Dip chicken in the egg and then coat both sides with the Parmesan mixture. Place in a greased 13X 9 inch baking dish.
Loosely cover baking dish with foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Uncover, bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until top is browned.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Spoon over the chicken. Return to the oven for 3-5 minutes or until tomato mixture is heated through.
