Combine Dijon, herbs, garlic, lemon juice and red pepper in a bowl.

Season the chicken well with salt and pepper, on both sides.

Brown the chicken in a large skillet, skin-side down in olive oil, then turn the pieces and cook 2 minutes.

Remove the chicken to a plate. Add chopped onion to the fat in the pan and cook until softened.

Add 1/4 cup chicken broth, stirring to dissolve any brown bits in the bottom of the pan.

Add flour and cook about 1 minute, until it starts to thicken.

Stir in the Dijon mixture and remaining broth.

Add the chicken back to the pan, skin-side up. Cover and simmer 15 minutes.

Uncover the pan and pour in the cream. Scatter the kale or spinach over the chicken.

Cover and return to a simmer for 5 minutes, until the sauce is thickened and the greens are wilted.

Serve the chicken straight out of the pan, with the tangy, flavorful juices spooned over
