Let's Make It
Blend broth, chiles and cream cheese in blender until smooth; set aside. Cook spaghetti in large pot as directed on package.
Meanwhile, cook chicken, onions and garlic salt in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat 5 to 7 min. or until chicken is lightly browned, stirring frequently. Stir in cream cheese sauce; cover.

Drain spaghetti; return to pot. Add sauce; mix lightly. Spoon onto platter; top with remaining ingredients.
Substitute roasted red bell peppers for the poblano peppers
How to Roast Peppers
Heat broiler. Place whole bell peppers or large chile peppers on foil-covered baking sheet. Broil, 4 inches from heat, 7 to 10 min. or until peppers are evenly blackened, turning occasionally. Place in paper bag; close bag. Let stand 20 min. or until peppers are cooled. Remove peppers from bag. Peel away blackened skins with small knife; discard skins. Cut peppers lengthwise in half; remove and discard seeds. Use roasted peppers as directed in recipe.
Omit the broth and use 1/2 cup of the reserved spaghetti cooking water to make the cream cheese sauce instead.
