Pasta with Creamy Chicken and Broccoli

I made this for dinner tonight and I always know if the recipe is a winner if Greg tells me that I can make it again...and he did with this one. I think the key is the cream cheese! I think I'll add garlic next time when I'm cooking the chicken!

12 oz. SAN GIORGIO Spaghetti, uncooked
4 cups Fresh or frozen broccoli florets
1 tablespoon Butter
3/4 lb. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/3 cup Chopped onion
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 cup Water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, cubed and softened
3/4 cup Grated Parmesan cheese

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Start to Finish: 20 minutes
