Attach flat beater to KitchenAid® Stand Mixer. Add flour and salt to mixer bowl and turn to speed 2 to combine. Stop and make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add eggs and olive oil to well, turn to speed 2 and mix for 2 to 3 minutes, adding water 1 tablespoon at a time until dough holds together. Remove flat beater and attach dough hook. Knead on Stir speed for 3 to 4 minutes. Gather dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and let rest at least 1 hour.
Attach KitchenAid Pasta Press attachment with fusilli plate to mixer. Divide prepared pasta dough into small walnut-sized balls. Turn mixer to speed 10 and drop pasta balls into hopper one at a time. Use combo tool if dough becomes caught in hopper and no longer self-feeds. Extrude fusilli to 2-inch lengths, cutting with wire cutter. Lay in a single layer on a lightly floured tray. Sprinkle with a little semolina flour.

Pull skin back over chicken arrange in large oven safe skillet (preferably cast iron) and drizzle with olive oil. Cut lemon into quarters and scatter around chicken. Roast in preheated oven 30 to 40 minutes until cooked through.
Remove skillet from oven and transfer chicken to cutting board. Drain all but 2 tablespoons fat from skillet. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove skin and cut into bite size pieces.
Bring large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and cook 3 to 4 minutes until al dente. Drain.
