Add the diced chicken to a large bowl and sprinkle with all the seasoning ingredients. Toss thoroughly to combine and coat all the chicken pieces.
In a large deep skillet, add olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes per side until almost cooked through.
Add diced onion and continue cooking until onion is slightly translucent and soft.
Pour chicken broth into pan to deglaze and scrape small browned bits from bottom of pan. Then add diced tomatoes and pasta, stir to combine, and bring to boil.
Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add cream cheese and stir to combine, letting the cream cheese melt into the sauce.
Remove from heat, top with green onions and parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
