Braised Chicken in Red Wine Sauce

I experimented with another quick chicken recipe. The sauce I created was good, but a little more liquid than I wanted, so I might have to try again.

5 chicken tenderloins
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon sugar
1 can (14.5 ounce) diced canned tomatoes
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon corn starch

Season tenderloins with salt and pepper.
Heat a Dutch oven over high heat. Add oil and swirl to coat.
Dredge chicken in flour in a shallow bowl, then cook for 5 minutes each side.
Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.
Add onion, garlic, and rosemary to the pan and cook until tender.
Add wine, chicken broth, sugar, diced tomatoes, and bay leaf to pan. Bring to a boil.
Add chicken back to pan and simmer for 15 minutes until chicken is fully cooked, turning chicken once.
Sprinkle corn starch in and stir to thicken sauce.
