Breadboards are beautiful and very appropriate but they won’t help with mating your top to your carcass. However you fasten it must allow the top to slide against the apron/leg assembly. I ran into this problem in the purpleheart humidor in my projects section attaching the plinth to the box. I used sliding slots and brass pins to keep everything attached. I’m about to face the exact problem you describe in my ongoing cherry nightstand project. I plan to use wooden blocks/buttons mounted on the top slotted into dados in the aprons.

I’ll wish us both luck!
