1. In a large frying pan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 3 tablespoons of pan drippings.
2. Use your hands to flatten chicken to an even thickness. Dip chicken into egg, then into bread crumbs to coat.
3. In pan drippings, cook chicken over medium heat, turning once or twice, until coating is browned and chicken is just white throughout, about 12 minutes.
4. Top each chicken breast with a slice of tomato crisscrosses of bacon, and cheese. Cover pan and continue to cook until cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes.
