My granddaughters just love this chicken dish. I try to make it every time they come to visit. Lucky for me, it goes together quick as a wink in the microwave.—Miriam Christophel, Battle Creek, Michigan


  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked spiral pasta
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, milk, salt and basil. Stir in the vegetables, chicken and 1 cup cheese. Drain pasta; stir into vegetable mixture.
