  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Using a mister or pastry brush dipped in olive oil, coat a 17 x 12-inch metal baking sheet with sides (or two smaller pans with sides). Place the drumsticks on the pan. Season on all sides with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove the pan from the oven. Add the carrots, scallions, parsley, lemon zest, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, and 2 tablespoons of oil. With a pancake turner, toss thoroughly to combine the vegetables and seasonings. Spread in a single layer.
  3. Bake for about 25 minutes, turning occasionally, or until no pink remains at the chicken bone and the carrots are tender.
  4. Meanwhile, place a covered large pot of water over high heat. When the water boils, add 2 teaspoons of salt and the fettuccine. Stir. Cover and return to a boil. Uncover and boil, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain and return to the pot.
  5. If the chicken skin is not well browned, heat the oven broiler. Broil the chicken 6 inches from the heat source for about 3 minutes, or until browned. Remove the drumsticks to a platter. Add the carrots, scallions, and pan juices to the fettuccine. Toss to combine.

Absolutely, without a doubt, the most perfect chicken recipe I have ever made! In keeping with the habit of reviewers here at AllRecipes, while praising the original recipe, I made a few small changes: I didn't have any Filipino oil, so I used the oil in my pantry - I think it was 3-and-1. I didn't have any chicken drumsticks, so I used the leftover turkey hamburgers I had from last weekend's barbeque. I was out of salt, and I was too lazy to drive 5 minutes to the store to get some, so I substituted some miscellaneous spice I found lying around. I don't like carrots or scallions, so I threw in some lettuce and old tomatoes that someone put in the garbage. I don't even understand parsley - I thought it was something they put on your plate at restaurants to make otherwise mediocre food look good. If I am too lazy to go to the store to get an ingredient I don't have, then I am certainly not going to zest a lemon, so I just threw in the whole peel. Didn't have fettucini, didn't care to go to the store, used some leftover macaroni salad. Like many reviewers here, I found that this perfect recipe was even more perfect with these few simple changes.


Everyone I have served this to has absolutely loved it. As a personal preference, I use chicken thighs, add even more carrots and green onions, and often omit the pasta. I have served this to my 85 year-old in-laws, young married couples, my family, all to rave reviews. The best thing is that it is easy to make and everyone thinks you've knocked yourself out! In fact, I am seriously considering serving this as dinner my church sponsors for a group of 35 homeless men. It wouldn't be that hard, and I can get lots of chicken thighs for a reasonable price at Costco!


This is easy and tasted pretty good. The "sauce" was pretty much oily grease though. I think maybe next time I'll leave most of it in the pan and just take out the veggies and chicken with a slotted spoon or something. Also, I cooked my chicken for much longer and ended up broiling it on both sides for a bit. Next time I think I will remove the veggies once they're done and then crank up the heat significantly because I'd rather have the skin on the chicken legs crispy. I added some lemon juice when I added the zest, I'd recommend doing that. If I make this again I will add other veggies besides the carrots. The carrots were good, but broccoli or green beans or something would have been a nice addition.
