Creamy Chicken and Mushroom pasta

My kid loves chicken dishes. Last night i decided to prepare something that's not spicy yet tasty and delicious . I have been preparing bechamel sauce  for quite a long time. So i decided using the same sauce for the chicken and mushroom. The dish came out really good and both my hubby and my son enjoyed it to the fullest. I would love to share this quick and tasty chicken recipe with you all.
