Season chicken with salt, pepper and thyme.

In a large skillet, melt 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) margarine over medium-high heat and cook chicken, turning occasionally, until golden.

Remove chicken from skillet, set aside and keep warm.

Add remaining margarine to the skillet along with onion and garlic and sauté over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes.

Add wine, broth and sage and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and return chicken to skillet.

Meanwhile, place kale and a few tablespoons of water in a large saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until tender. Season with salt and pepper.

Divide kale evenly onto 4 plates; top each with one piece of chicken and one-fourth of beans and sauce mixture.

Garnish with a sprig of sage.
