Chicken gumbo soup but not really?

Anyone ever had one of those chicken gumbo soups that are called chicken gumbo but they are not really gumbo. You can tell they are not made with a dark roux or anything like that. I mean i like chicken gumbo but these soups i also like very much too. When i search on chicken gumbo soup all i find is the traditional chicken gumbo which is not what i want. There is a sub shop near me that fixes awesome chicken gumbo soup. I would sure like to find a recipe like this. Can anyone help?

Ncage, would love to help as I am sure many here would, but it would help if you gave some details about the soup.

Perhaps you could deconstruct it a tad. By that I mean tell us what is in it that you can figure out? Are there chicken pieces? If so, what size? How about veggies? Is there okra, celery, maybe tomatoes, perhaps some rice. Is the soup very liquidy and what is the color? And most importantly, what can you taste in it?

That is one approach.

Or can go in, buy the soup for a few days, and ask about the recipe.

If not the full recipe they will probably tell you a bit about it.

Just a few ideas that strike me at this early hour.

Good luck and God bless.

Just make a chicken vegetable soup and add okra. That is the "gumbo" these are "selling".
