Season the chicken with salt and one tsp of pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook the chicken for about 5 minutes until browned. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.

Add the butter to the same pan and melt. Add the shallots and mushrooms and cook until softened and just beginning to caramelize about 4 minutes.

Pour in the wine and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add in the green beans and browned chicken and reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes or until green beans are tender, but still firm.

Stir in the crème fraîche and tarragon and continue to simmer, uncovered for about 3-5 minutes until all is heated through and the chicken is completely cooked. Season with the remaining pepper before serving.
