Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large saucepan. Saute the ground chicken in the oil for 4 to 5 minutes until cooked and add bell pepper to the saucepan and saute it for 1 minute.
Add water and broth to the pan. Sift cornstarch and flour into some water and whisk it into the pan.
Add remaining ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil.
