🍜Sesame Chicken 🥡🥢 ⠀

Being gluten free is especially hard when you grew up eating Chinese food.😢 Trying to find a restaurant that offers even 1 dish made without soy sauce is like trying to find a needle in a haystack! Even though in theory if they use this and take out that then everything if fine... but most of the time that's not the case and they just aren't willing to do it. So whats a girl gonna do? Looks like I'm cooking Chinese food at home 😊 As long as you have everything laid out and ready to go, making most Asian dishes are quick and easy.
