What does ‘hassle free meal’ mean?

Let’s just make sure we’re all on the same page here shall we? I’m sure you’ll agree when I say it absolutely has to be all of these things:

  • Minimal hands on time
  • Minimal prep
  • As few pots to wash as possible
  • Quick or the oven/slow cooker does the hard work
