  1. Mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and cook the shallots over a low heat for 5 minutes, until starting to soften. Add the thyme and garlic and cook, stirring, for another minute.
  2. Increase the heat to medium and add the chicken. Sprinkle over the flour, then cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes until the chicken is browned all over.
  3. Stir in a spoonful of the stock, releasing any browned bits from the bottom of the pan using a wooden spoon. Add the remaining stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, stir in the crème fraîche and mustard and season well. Add the kale and beans and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
