The Junior League of Omaha Chicken Piccata

This amazing Chicken Piccata recipe will remind you of your favorite restaurant experience right in the comfort of your own home! With only 30 minutes of total work, this dinner recipe is simple, fast and delicious. Almost sounds too good to be true, right?!

Needs some extra help tackling chicken? Check out our tips below.

  1. Halve your chicken breasts. If you aren’t able to purchase thin chicken breasts, you can butterfly them to double your servings and ensure more even cooking.
  2. Don’t cook chicken cold. Let’s be real, chicken doesn’t taste good when it’s overcooked. The best way to avoid this is to reduce the amount of cook time needed. Instead of going straight from fridge to frypan, let your chicken sit on the counter for roughly 30 minutes to come to room temperature.
  3. Don’t start with a cold pan. For the same reasons as above, it’s not helpful to start with a cold pan because the chicken cooks more slowly, juices start to seep out as the pan heats, and results in pale and overcooked chicken.

Now use these tips with the recipe below and go show us how it’s done! Don’t forget to tag #JLOmaha and @jlomaha in your social media posts when you brag about your cooking skills.

#GivingTuesday402

SHARE Omaha and Omaha Community Foundation Change the Landscape of Giving in the Omaha Community

What gives? 

We’re all probably familiar with the Omaha Community Foundation’s “Omaha Gives! Day of Giving” – over the last eight years $58 million has been raised for 1,000 local nonprofits. WOW!! Omaha Gives focused on one day of giving each year. 

Sounds great, right? So what’s changing, and why? 

While they’ve had a truly amazing run, Omaha Gives will be going away. Don’t worry, the Omaha Community Foundation isn’t going anywhere! They are using the time and energy that went into developing Omaha Gives and refocusing it on different ways to better help the Omaha community. Now, SHARE Omaha will be taking the lead as the Greater Omaha Area donation and volunteer platform. SHARE Omaha is a one stop shop for finding helpers to support in our community And for becoming one of them. How great is it that you can find all that at https://shareomaha.org/?

Hey! What Gives? I’ll miss Omaha Gives! Will there be another day of giving?

Absolutely! Giving back isn’t canceled. SHARE Omaha participates in the global generosity movement, Giving Tuesday! And it’s right around the corner. . . mark your calendar! This is their second year being a part of Giving Tuesday, promoting #GivingTuesday402 and #GivingTuesday712. We are excited to join in and grow this movement with them! GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. This global movement will take place this year on Tuesday, December 1st. Our Omaha metro area celebrates December 1 with #GivingTuesday402. 

Why Give?

2020 has been a year unlike any other. We all share the challenges of 2020, and together we show our strength by giving – and doingall we can for each other. Giving Tuesday – December 1 – is our day. We can harness the power of all, with ALL gifts and ALL ways of doing good. All hearts and hands will lift the Omaha metro for #GivingTuesday402. 

With over 100 years of combining volunteer service and experience, the Junior League of Omaha is a 501(c)(3) organization of women committed to the women and children of the Omaha community. We focus on addressing one of Omaha’s most critical and unmet needs — hunger and access to healthy foods

  • According to the Food Research and Action Center, Nebraska is 7th in the nation for food insecurity.
  • 1 in 6 Nebraska children struggle with hunger (Map the Meal Gap 2019). 
  • 4 in 10 people living below the poverty line in the Omaha Metro worry they may run out of food (The Landscape Omaha).
  • 75% of students in Omaha Public Schools qualify for free or reduced lunch (The Landscape Omaha).

No one in Omaha should go hungry. You can provide their next meal. Will you help?

40 Under 40: Alysia Radicia

Junior League of Omaha members Colby Jensen, Alyson Manning and Alysia Radicia won a 2020 Midlands Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 award, the 19th edition of the prestigious awards program for Omaha’s entrepreneurs, executives and professionals. This is part of a series recognizing the League members who won the award.

An interior designer, Alysia Radicia joined RDG Planning & Design in 2011.

“I’ve had the opportunity to work on some pretty amazing civic minded projects: Work at UNMC, the Women’s Center for Advancement, The Jewish Community Center – all organizations that are mission minded and work for the community,” she said. “I’m an avid volunteer and am constantly trying to do good in my community, having the ability to blend professional and volunteer passions is highly meaningful and impactful.”

Alysia is in her eighth year with the Junior League, currently serving as the Executive Vice President-Elect, a step-up position to Executive Vice President for the 2021-2022 League year. Other positions she has held include 2019-2020 Member at Large, 2018-2019 Development and Donor Relations Annual Appeal Coordinator, 2017-2018 Fundraising Council Director, 2016-2017 Done in a Day Vice Chair and multiple positions on American Girl.

Alysia also spearheaded the League’s headquarters redesign in 2018-2019.

The League has helped her in so many ways, she says.

“I have had so many opportunities to learn and grow that I certainly would not have had in my professional career,” Alysia said. “At the beginning of my League career it was managing a committee of 23 working towards raising $70,000. Wow! The energy and effort involved in that; I learn financial organization, donor stewardship, communication strategies, logistics and planning, team development, marketing. Not every single element of these skills I used in my day-to-day, but my clients certainly do. Having this perspective has helped me in becoming their best advocate and consultant, I know what their role and work entails and I can help in ways that other designers can’t. Now, as I develop in my League career I am constantly gaining skills and insight on working with and developing teams. How to manage different personalities, how to build trust, effective means of communication, fostering empathy, being the best cheerleader and motivating various teams in achieving some pretty amazing stuff.”

Alysia is also active beyond the League with Greater Omaha Chamber Young Professional Council, Friends of Nebraska Children, Opera Omaha, Joslyn Art Museum Young Art Patrons, Share Omaha and Women’s Fund Circles. She is a Leadership Omaha Class 40 graduate.

“Be open to opportunities,” Alyisa said of her advice for other young professionals. “I am a firm believer in self-care, boundaries, knowing when to say no, but simultaneously you have to be open to opportunities when they present themselves. Sure, life is hectic and chaotic, but when asked to take on a new role, join a committee, or a new project, take a moment and reflect how you could learn and grow from the opportunity. Also, take stock on the fact that someone thought you were best suited for a particular role – you. Lean into what opportunities are in front of you while caring for yourself.”

40 Under 40: Alyson Manning

In addition, anytime I can provide additional opportunities to my team members to help them further their career, build their confidence and be seen as a trusted advisor, makes my career much more rewarding.”

2020 Midlands Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Awards

Junior League of Omaha members Colby Jensen, Alyson Manning and Alysia Radicia are not just leaders within the League, they are leaders in business and service, earning the 2020 Midlands Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 award. The 19th edition of the prestigious awards program for Omaha’s
entrepreneurs, executives and professionals was announced in September.

From left to right: Colby Jensen, Alyson Manning, Alysia Radicia

“I was blown away when I found out I was among the other great professionals on the 40 Under 40 list,”
said Colby, an Audit Senior Manager with BKD, LLP, and the League’s Diversity & Inclusion Treasurer and a Nominating Committee member. “Receiving this award displays my commitment to my career and community and acknowledges the progress all recipients have made professionally and in the greater Omaha area. It provides reassurance to ‘keep up the good work’ to create rewarding opportunities and experiences to those surrounding us, allowing others within our community to flourish and thrive. I’m so thankful to part of this list and a citizen on the Omaha community.”

Alyson, Employee Relations Director for Kiewit Corporation, agreed.

“It’s a true honor and privilege to be awarded this honor, along with the 39 other individuals recognized with such impressive volunteer and professional credentials,” she said. “Recognizing the great accomplishments of young people in these areas in our community each year also helps set a
precedence for everybody to understand and agree on. More so, it can help inspire others to exceed
these standards and foster the continuous improvement in our society.”

Alyson became a Sustainer after serving as the 2018-2019 Recording Secretary. She also previously held
the positions of Executive Vice President, Cookbook Chair and American Girl Models Coordinator Chair,
among others, throughout her time as an Active Member.

Alysia is the Executive Vice President-Elect. She works as an interior designer at RDG Planning & Design
while balancing her roles in the League and other community organizations.

“I don’t do the work I do for the title or the recognition,” she said. “In my role as a designer I strive to
design spaces that best position the organizations for success; same is to be said for the work I do as a
volunteer. The best recognition I can receive is when the organization is able to meet their goals and
better serve the community due to the design or volunteer time I have done. In this instance, receiving a 40 Under 40 Award solidifies that the work I do matters and makes a difference.”

Over the next several days, JLO Connections will profile Colby, Alyson and Alysia. Each woman will also be featured in the Midlands Business Journal’s Dec. 8 edition.

TAGG, You’re It!

Together A Greater Good (TAGG) has generated over $400,000 for local schools, nonprofits, religious institutions, and youth sports teams, since being launched in 2015. As a female-founded, Nebraska tech company, TAGG allows you to support your favorite nonprofits like the Junior League of Omaha by snapping a picture of your receipt from participating businesses, who will donate 5% of the total. It’s as easy as 1-2-3! Click here to see the participating Omaha and Lincoln businesses.

TAGG makes giving back so easy that active member and Cookbook Committee co-chair, Katy Spratte Joyce, raised over $100 during the summer for the Junior League of Omaha. “Overall, since I began TAGGing in August of 2015, I’ve raised $1,735.88 for local causes. Recently, I’ve earmarked all my TAGG activity just for the Junior League of Omaha. In the past, I’ve also donated to the Red Cross, American Heart Association, Nebraska Children & Families Foundation, St. Margaret Mary Catholic School, and more.”

Katy’s a TAGG-ing pro and the former community relations manager at TAGG, where she worked for three years with the charities, schools, teams, etc. on the TAGG platform to help increase their fundraising efforts. When asked her favorite places to TAGG, Katy said, “Blue Sushi, Smoothie King, Kontempo, and The Bookworm.” She recommends making the commitment to go to TAGG businesses, when you’re just beginning to TAGG. “After a few TAGGs, it becomes second nature. And as you can see in my example below, if you are strategic about large purchases, like car maintenance and repairs, your amount raised goes up even faster. You can do everything from order coffee using a TAGG business to get a new roof using a TAGG business.”

Here’s how Katy raised over $100:

June 25: Smoothie King, $0.37 

June 30: The Bookworm $6.30 

July 31: Whisk+Measure, $0.95

August 1: The Bookworm $5.95

August 4: Reve Salon & Spa, $3.25

August 15: Smoothie King, $0.34

August 15: Spirit World, $1.10

August 25: Blue Sushi Sake Grill, $0.90

August 31:  Kontempo, $15.00

August 31: Smoothie King, $0.37

September 1: Smoothie King, $0.34

September 9: Omaha Car Care, $61.13

September 24: Omaha Car Care, $67.03 

Total Raised: $163.03

“I like that I can shop intentionally at places that care enough to give back to their community,” said Katy when asked what she enjoys most about TAGG. “Nothing shows your values like where you spend your money. TAGG makes it so easy to give back while just doing your normal expenditures like picking up takeout or supporting your favorite local shop.”
