    If you cooked the chicken in with the sauce the bit of fat that rendered out will cause the sauce to firm up.

    Also the collagen that baked out of the chicken will also cause any sauce to firm up.

    As you reheat the sauce and chicken it will return to the normal viscosity.

    Because you are reheating it there will be some evaporation you might want to add just a little bit of water for added moisture.
