Yes you can, but be aware if you use the Maya plugin wizard the MayaWizardReadme.txt states:

2. Copy the following files to the "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcprojects" directory:
MayaPluginWizard.vsdir
MayaPluginWizard.vsz
MayaPluginWizard.ico

Using express its found here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\Express\VCProjects\

Just make a folder in there and add the files they specify.

you can use the express edition, but you'll also need the platform SDK: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A55B6B43-E24F-4EA3-A93E-40C0EC4F68E5&displaylang=en

Just set the lib and include paths in the VC options to the platform SDK paths.
