If you used lemon zest for flavor would that eliminate the custard curdle?

Hi Judy! I don't know that it would be a guarantee for every pan shape and every chicken, since there's still some acid from the wine and high heat, but others on the recipe thread have said they've consistently had unbroken custard by leaving out the lemon (see mustardwithmutton's comment).
