Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 min. Add half the chicken; cook 2 min. or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining chicken; return all chicken to skillet. Add spinach; cook and stir 1 min. or until spinach starts to wilt.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
For Saucier Pasta
If you prefer a thinner sauce, reserve 1 cup of the pasta cooking water to mix with the cream cheese and bouillon.
Tip 2
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a crisp mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing to balance out the meal.
Tip 3
How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
