Going to the grocery store and cooking meals at home instead of spending your evenings at restaurants can save you money.

If you are looking for a single ingredient that's affordable, simple to cook and can be used in countless dishes, you can start out with a whole chicken, according to celebrity chef Guy Fieri.

A whole chicken adds protein to your meal and what you don't eat you can use to make a stock for later, said Fieri.
