The lean chicken won't, but chicken that is deep fried and has a coating that contains a high amount of fat could make you gain weight. It's always the coating over the chicken, not the meat itself, that attributes to weight gain. For example in KFC, the coating of flour and other ingredients they use which is then deep-fried in fats and oils, is what makes chicken more fatty, thus making you gain weight.
