Remove fat from chicken.  Put chicken in a large casserole or pot.  Add the parsnip, celery, onion, bay leaves, thyme and small pinches of salt and pepper.  Cover ingredients with water.  Bring to a boil.  Skim foam from surface.  Cover and cook very low heat 1-1/2 hours.

Serve chicken in fairly shallow bowls with carrots and zucchini.  Add dill, cilantro or parsley in each bowl.  Moisten each serving with a few spoonfuls of soup.
