In a large pot of boiling water, cook the fettuccine until tender. Drain well, reserving 1/3 cup of the cooking water.
Meanwhile, on a sheet of waxed paper, combine 2 tablespoons of the flour, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until hot but not smoking over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring, until light browned, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon flour and stir until the chicken is coated. Gradually add the milk, stirring until smooth. Add the cream cheese, reserved 1/3 cup pasta water, the nutmeg, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the sauce is slightly thickened and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Add the peas and cook, uncovered, just until the peas are warmed through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl, add the fettucine and Parmesan, and toss to combine. Spoon the fettuccine mixture onto 4 plates, sprinkle the scallions over, and serve.
