Before starting, add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Wash and dry all produce. Roughly chop spinach, if desired. (TIP: Place spinach in a bowl, then roughly chop using a pair of kitchen shears or scissors!)Pat chicken dry with paper towels on a separate cutting board. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Season with half the garlic salt and pepper.
Add spaghetti to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain spaghetti.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium (medium-high for 4 ppl). When hot, add 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken and onions. Cook, tossing occasionally, until onions begin to soften and chicken is golden-brown, 2-4 min. (NOTE: It's okay if it doesn't cook all the way through in this step!)
Sprinkle Cream Sauce Spice Blend over chicken and onions. Cook, stirring often, until coated, 30 sec. Reduce heat to medium-low, then add 1 cup water (1 1/2 cups for 4 ppl), cream, broth concentrate and remaining garlic salt. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly and chicken is cooked through, 3-4 min.**
Add spaghetti, half the reserved pasta water, spinach, half the Parmesan and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan with creamy chicken sauce. (TIP: For a lighter sauce consistency, add more reserved pasta water, 1-2 tbsp at a time, if desired.) Season with pepper, to taste, then toss to combine.
Divide creamy chicken pasta between plates. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over top.
