Rinse and shred the kale leaves, separating them from the stems. Take a pot of a suitable size and heat it on a medium-high flame, add oil and put onions, carrots, leeks, celery stalks and a pinch of salt, stir fry for 5-6 minutes or until the vegetables have become softer. Add the mashed garlic and saute everything for another minute until the garlic gives off its aroma. Pour the canned tomatoes with all the juice into the pot, add some salt and mix everything.

Cook over low heat until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes and beans are tender, about 20 minutes. Then add the crumpled kale leaves, mix well, add salt and pepper to taste.
