Combine breadcrumbs and cheese in shallow dish or pie plate. Dredge the chicken pieces in crumb mixture to coat on both sides.
Heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add half of the chicken and cook until golden and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate; cover with foil and keep warm. Repeat.
Add drained tomatoes, garlic, olives, vinegar, red pepper and 1/3 cup of tomato liquid. Cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally until slightly thickened.
Remove from heat and discard garlic (if desired). Stir in basil. Spoon sauce over cutlets and serve.
