Chinese dishes are so easy to make gluten free. Most dishes use the rule choose your protein, veg and then sauce when it comes to Chinese cooking, this peking dish is exception. Just switch soy sauce to tamari sauce (the Japanese equivalent which is gluten free) and you are good to go with Chinese cooking.
