Heat a wok dry, and warm the dried chilis, then crumble them. Add a little oil to the wok and saute the chilis, ginger, galangal, shallots and garlic, until aromatic.
In a medium sauce pan, bring the stock to a boil. Add the sauteed ingredients, and the fish sauce and lime juice, and taste for balance. Then add the remaining ingredients, and bring back to a boil before adding the chicken. After about 1 minute taste for the balance of spices again, and then serve when the chicken is just cooked.
