I don't use any of them, so I can't recommend.  I use the default Scheme
mode shipped with Emacs and the following additions:

(show-paren-mode 1)
(global-font-lock-mode 1)

(defun buffer-cleanup ()
  (untabify (point-min) (point-max)))

(put 'and-let* 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'parameterize 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'with-request-vars 'scheme-indent-function 2)
(put 'with-request-vars* 'scheme-indent-function 2)
(put 'with-request-variables 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'with-transaction 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'handle-exceptions 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'when 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'unless 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'match 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(put 'match-let 'scheme-indent-function 1)
(eval-after-load 'scheme
  (put 'module 'scheme-indent-function
       #'(lambda () (state indent-point normal-indent) 0)))

(setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil)

Nothing fancy.

The wiki has a page about editing CHICKEN code with Emacs:

Best wishes.
