Combine panko and sage.
Dredge chicken through flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Dredge through egg mixture, shaking off excess. Dredge through panko mixture, gently pressing panko onto chicken. Transfer chicken to a large plate.
Line a separate large plate with paper towel and set aside. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp oil on medium-high. Working in batches if necessary, add chicken to skillet and cook, turning once, for 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until cooked through and no longer pink in center. Transfer to paper towel–lined plate. Cover with foil and set aside.
Return skillet to medium-high. Add garlic and bell pepper and sauté, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes, until softened. Sprinkle remaining 1 tbsp flour over top and stir quickly. Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, until liquid is slightly thickened. Reduce heat to a simmer. Working in batches, add collard greens, about 2 cups per batch, cooking each batch until slightly wilted. Add beans, stir to combine and cook until heated through. Season with pepper flakes and toss to combine; remove from heat. Spoon greens-beans mixture onto serving plates and top with chicken, dividing evenly.
