Culinary Creations with your Host!

(and of course, the timer just dinged...)
What am I up to you ask? Culinary greatness of course! I talk a big game right now because I have not yet tried what I have just created.
Here's what I've done -
- 3 tomato basil Chicken breasts, pounded into 1 1/2 their size (basically flat enough to roll, but not so flat they start falling apart)
- Spinach (fresh leaf)
- Sliced turkey (lunch meat)
Preheat oven to 325. Lay chicken on cooking sheet. Remove stems from spinach and lay leaf flat on chicken. Lay turkey slice over spinach, and thinly sliced mushrooms over that. Place a healthy pinch of feta in the center. Roll chicken up and place seem side down (so it stays rolled), or use toothpicks to keep rolled. Cook for 25 minutes. (might have been too long, it looks a little dry).
Meanwhile, I'm using my new rice cooker to make rice. I might be the only cook on earth who didn't know this, but somehow it automatically knows when the rice is done and switches to warm (maybe it's not magic). So, while the rice is warming after it cooks (the instructions recommend letting it warm for another 15 minutes to get truly fluffy rice) I'm making brussel sprouts.
I'll try to remember to include an update as to how it tastes or any recommendations I have for next time.
Update - It came out fabulous. It does need a sauce or basting during cooking because just the outer skin was a bit dry. The rice was good too. And of course the brussel sprouts. Nom! Nom! Nom!
