Put the broccoli, bell pepper and chicken onto the tray inside
the steamer. Sprinkle with the salt. Secure lid.

Select Vegetables, set timer for 10 minutes and press Start.

While food is steaming, prepare the sauce: Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and sauté until the garlic just starts to brown. Stir in the broth and cook to reduce slightly. Add the slurry and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Cook for 1 minute and then stir in the soy sauce and chili flakes.

Once timer expires, remove lid, pat ingredients dry with a paper towel and use tongs to transfer ingredients to skillet with the sauce; stir. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
