Preheat the oven to 450°F (to roast beans and finish chicken). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature!
Wash and dry all produce.* Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves oﬀ stems. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Cut stems off the green beans, if needed. Zest lemon. (NOTE: You will prep remaining lemon in Step 5.) Pat chicken dry with paper towel. In a large bowl, toss chicken with half the lemon zest, half the thyme, and 1 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Peel, then finely chop shallot into 1/4-inch pieces. Peel, then grate potatoes. Over a strainer, using a clean dish cloth or paper towel, firmly squeeze the excess liquid from the grated potatoes. In a medium bowl, stir together grated potatoes, shallots, flour, remaining thyme. Season with 1/2 tsp salt and pepper. Set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then chicken. Pan-fry until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. On a baking sheet, toss beans and garlic with 1 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. When chicken is golden-brown, remove the pan from heat, then transfer chicken to baking sheet with beans. Bake in the middle of the oven until the chicken is cooked through and beans are tender-crisp, 8-10 min. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 74°C/165°F, as size may vary.**)
Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then in an even layer, loosely scatter in half the potato mixture. (NOTE: Don't press down!) Cook, not stirring, until bottom of the hash is golden-brown and slightly crispy, 2-3 min. Using your spatula, break up hash and flip pieces over. Cook, not stirring, until the other side is slightly crispy, 2-3 min. Transfer hash to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with another 1 tbsp oil and remaining potato mixture.
Finely chop the chives. Juice half the lemon, then cut the remaining lemon into wedges. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, chives, 1/2 tbsp lemon juice and remaining lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Thinly slice the chicken. Divide the chicken, potato hash and beans between plates. Dollop the hash with lemon-chive crema. Squeeze over a with a lemon wedge, if desired.
