Great without the lemon juice.

Just don't add the salt and substitute apple cider vinegar for the white wine and cayanne pepper for the black.
This would have been better possible if there had been some chicken broth mixed in with lemon juice so it wasn't so tart. It would have also made more "gravy" to serve over the chicken. It was a little tart for us and we love lemon. I would also probably omit the sliced lemons next time.
