Usually when refrigerated the sauce will thicken. To reheat, add it to a medium-large sauce pan over medium heat and add 1/2 to 1 cup of chicken broth or even water. Start with 1/2 cup, stir to combine and if needed add more, until you achieve the desired sauce consistency. You can also add cream, if you are looking for a creamier texture.
