In brief: Not if broiled,,

Chicken and turkey are not bad for cholesterol, especially if they are broiled and roasted respectively.
This is likely to remove most of the fat under the skin and keep the meat lean. It also helps not to have fried chicken or heavy gravy with your turkey so that you don't add unnecessary fat and salt to the meal. Best of luck.
