Melt the oil or in a stockpot over medium heat, add chicken breast and lightly fry for 2 minutes. Add the onion, garlic, carrot, celery, thyme and bay leaf. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes until the vegetables are soft but not browned.
Pour the broth into the pot and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the ginger, zucchini and pumpkin to the pot and cook for a further 15 minutes until the pumpkin is tender.
Add the silverbeet and simmer for another few minutes until the silverbeet is cooked. Sprinkle on the parsley before serving.
This can also be made in a slow cooker, just add all the ingredients in and leave to cook until chicken and pumpkin are cooked through (depending on your slow cooker temperature)
