I want to make this for my niece's baby shower. Can it be prepared the day before and heated up?

You can bread the chicken and keep it in the refrigerator. You can also make the sauce beforehand. But I would suggest you fry the chicken before your guests arrive and warm up the sauce over a double boiler.
