Gluten Free Chinese Food Recipes

These 6 gluten free Chinese food recipes (I know that if you’re not from the U.S., maybe some of this food seems crazy, but this is pretty standard American Chinese restaurant fare) bring it all back—better than ever!

Gluten Free Chinese Food Recipes

tour of these 6 Gluten Free Chinese Food Recipes, and a few words to say what I love about each of them (links below and in the photos above as well):

This tested, easy-to-follow recipe for gluten free won ton wrappers and won ton soup will rock your gluten free world with how easy the wrappers are to make, and how useful they are!

Gluten Free Won Ton Soup: I can’t say enough good things about both these gluten free won ton wrappers (such a fabulous dough to work with!) and this won ton soup (so easy, so flavorful!).

I have a whole bunch of filled and shaped won tons in the freezer that I’m saving for a rainy day when there’s no dinner but everyone’s hungry. Boil the won tons right from the freezer, and voilà‎. Instant dinner.

Gluten Free Scallion Pancakes

Gluten Free Scallion Pancakes: To go with your won ton soup, obviously! Crispy and chewy, all at the same time, these scallion pancakes have layers and layers of flavor, just like you remember.

Gluten free sesame chicken pouring sauce to serve.


Gluten Free Baked Sesame Chicken: Looking for a quick, healthy and easy dinner? Try this baked version of sesame chicken. Try it once, and it’ll start making a regular appearance in your dinner rotation.

Gluten Free Chinese Style Lemon Chicken—just like take out, but better!

Gluten Free Lemon Chicken: An oldie but a goodie, I first put this recipe up on the blog in 2009 (!), the very year I started blogging. I’ve redecorated the post a bit, but mostly, it’s the same: bright, lemony and delicious. You’ll love it!

Gluten Free Eggrolls with homemade gluten free won ton wrappers

Gluten Free Egg Rolls: I first made gluten free egg rolls with my original recipe for won ton wrappers (which still works great), but now that I’ve upped my won ton game (see the won ton soup above!), I have no choice but to make egg rolls again pronto. 

Gluten Free Crab Rangoon

Gluten Free Crab Rangoon: From the time that I first published a recipe for gluten free won ton wrappers, the requests for crab rangoon started pouring in! Try them with the new and improved won ton wrappers. I know I will!

    Will definitely be trying the sesame chicken, egg rolls, and wontons soon. My little guy will love me :). On a side note… any chance you have a recipe for orange chicken in the working?? I’ve tried 2 recipes that were GF off the internet. My little boy was so happy to have SOMETHING that he devoured them. Hubs and I were both saying YUCK!! though. Was definitely not what you would find at a restaurant. Thanks for all the recipes. So far everything I have tried has been a hit for all!

    Hi Nicole! I was wondering if honeyville is a good brand of almond flour? thanks for the recipes!

      Yes, she mentions on some of her Paleo recipes that she buys almond flour from nuts.com or Honeyville. I love Honeyville almond flour and buy it in 25 pound bags!!

      How kind of you to ask about me! Well, I was in Miami Beach last week for work. (Not glamorous, promise.) And now I’m just buried under a mountain of work. I wish I had more time to bake!

      Do you have your new oven yet??

        Oven heating element replaced successfully. Check out the rise I got in the off oven with bowl of hot water on the shelf. Thank you so much for your suggestion!

          You’re very welcome! That is some happy yeast!

          I had a heating element go out once. It died in a blaze of glory. It sort of started on fire, and it burned traveling the whole shape of it, like a sparkler would.

        • February 28, 2014 at 1:49 PM

          Donia, Mare has been looking for you everywhere (seriously) to show you how much you helped her get that fantastic rise out of her yeast!

          That is so, so sweet. I am really touched. I just love this place!! Such friends down here in the comments section. :)

          It cracked and started to behave like a sparkler and my husband just happened to look in while the oven was preheating and saw the issue and turned it off. Originally we thought it was something on the element, but when it cooled down, we saw it was cracked.

          And where did you get that dough bucket?!? I’m late to the party, but WANT! Thank you! I learn so much reading the comments here!

    Love, love, love the sesame chicken and so does my whole family. I’ve made the original wonton wrappers with great success! can’t wait to try the rest of these – I miss Chinese so much. And OH! the fried recipe in book 2 (I believe) is sooooo wonderful too. Thanks Nicole!

    Thanks for putting these all in one place! I see a couple showing up on my dinner plan for next week, for sure! (Notice I said “plan” Jennifer S., I am trying to be just like you!)

      Holy cow Anneke!! Great job! :)

    • February 28, 2014 at 1:50 PM

      Plan, huh, Anneke? Let me know how that goes. I could stand to plan a bit more. Except I know I won’t. And then I’ll scramble most days, as per usual. ;)

        Two more days left in the plan, this is the second week I have done it. Going pretty well so far, we’ll see what next week brings. Plan runs Mon-Sun, since I generally grocery shop on Mondays. It is really helping me with knowing when to get my bread rising! Need to mix up baguettes tonight for Linnea’s birthday dinner on Sunday.

        I read the “scramble” in your post as “scramble eggs,” which if you did that most days would be a lot of scrambled eggs!
