Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and then brush both sides of them with the mayonnaise.
Place the crumbs in a large zipper-close plastic bag. Add the chicken breasts, one at a time, and shake to coat evenly with the crumbs.
Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet.
Top each piece of chicken with the tomato slices and then drizzle evenly with the oil.
