Cook rice according to package directions; remove from heat and stir in half the onion.
In a large skillet cook chicken, Italian seasoning, and garlic in hot oil over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning once. Remove from skillet; reserve drippings.
For sauce, cook remaining onion in reserved skillet drippings until tender, adding more oil as necessary. Stir in cornstarch; add milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; stir in cream cheese until nearly smooth. Remove from heat; stir in broccoli, Parmesan cheese, and ham. Cool.
