Preheat oven to 375°F. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over high heat. Stir together salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder, and sprinkle both sides of chicken with spice mixture.
Add chicken to skillet and cook until lightly browned and chicken easily releases from skillet, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Turn heat down to medium, and add onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10-15 minutes until caramelized.
Spread onions in a thin layer across the skillet, and top with tomato slices. Sprinkle with basil and layer with half of sliced cheese. Top with chicken and cover chicken with remaining cheese.
Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 5 minutes, until heated through. Turn oven to broil and broil until cheese is bubbly and slightly golden. Remove from oven and let sit about 5 minutes. Serve, and enjoy!
*I use a non-stick skillet or French oven so I don't find that oil is necessary.
