1.Preheat oven to 200°C.
2.Combine flour and Tuscan spice blend in a bowl. Season well with salt and pepper and then coat the chicken thighs in the mixture.
3.Heat the oil in a large frying pan or skillet and cook the chicken, skin-side down, over a medium-high heat until well browned. Turn the pieces and brown on the other side. Remove to a plate and set aside.
4.Reduce the heat to low and cook the onion and garlic gently until soft. Add the wine and bring to a simmer, cooking until reduced by half. Add the chicken stock and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
5.Mix the cornflour with the cold water, and add to pan. When liquid begins to thicken, return the chicken pieces to the pan.
