Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. In a small bowl, mix the chilli, if using, with the ginger and soy. Tip the chicken into a roasting pan large enough that there is a two-finger width space between each piece. Pour in the marinade and stir to coat. Add the onion quarters, then arrange the lemon slices in between the pieces of chicken. Roast for 35 minutes, basting halfway through, until the chicken is tender
Remove from the oven, pour any juices into a small pan, then return the chicken and onions to the oven. Add the butter to the juices with the honey and lemon zest, and cook for a few minutes until it has reduced by a third.
Remove the chicken from the oven and evenly pour over the honey sauce, then cook for a further 5-10 minutes or until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced at the thickest point. Remove from the oven and rest for 5 minutes before serving.
While the chicken rests, heat the oil in a medium pan over a medium heat and fry the shallots for 2-3 minutes until golden. Add the garlic, stirring to keep it from burning, then tip in the greens with a splash of water to help them cook. Season and stir-fry for 5 minutes.
Serve with extra chilli flakes or chilli oil, if you like, and the steamed rice and green vegetables on the side.
