Hot sesame-cream chicken tartines

Hot sesame-cream chicken tartines
Slices of lightly toasted bread topped with sesame and tarragon cream, morsels of chicken and a little grated cheese. Just popped in the oven for a few minutes to brown.

[Translator's note: in French, a tartine is simply a slice of bread spread with something (butter, jam...) or an open sandwich, sometimes hot. The term is now catching on in English.]
