Heat the chicken stock in a pan with half of the ginger, half of the spring onions, half of the chilli and the lemongrass, star anise, and whole garlic clove. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix the chicken, the remaining ginger, spring onion, chilli, garlic, the egg, breadcrumbs and 1 tsp soy sauce in a bowl. Season, and shape into 12 small balls.
Strain the stock through a sieve, discarding the solids, and bring to a low simmer again. Add the chicken dumplings to the soup, and simmer for 8 minutes until cooked through. The stock needs to be simmering gently otherwise the dumplings will break up. Add the bok choy and season with soy sauce. Simmer for 2 more minutes until the bok choy wilts and add more red chilli and spring onion to serve.
