Blanch green beans in boiling water until tender but not mushy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Immediately immerse in an ice bath to stop the cooking and preserve their color.
When beans are cool, drain and cut into 1-inch pieces on the diagonal.
In a small bowl, combine mayo and mustard and mix well.
In another bowl, combine chicken with green beans, chopped cornichons and capers.
Add mayo-mustard mixture and combine well.
Serve over greens.
