    1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm.
    2. Add mushrooms and leeks to the pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until most of the moisture has evaporated and mushrooms begin to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add wine; cook for about 1 minute. Mix stock and cornflour together in a small bowl; add to the pan and cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in soured cream and mustard; cook and stir until combined, about 1 minute. Season sauce with salt and pepper.
    3. Nestle chicken thighs into the sauce. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes to heat through.
