Rotating the engine backwards. Not a big deal. Rotate it forward and it will probably tighten up.

Another thought - the cam tensioner is driven by oil pressure. If the engine wasn't running... the tensioner can get pushed back a bit.

When you get everything back together - start the engine and get some oil pressure - the chain should be tight.

FWIW,
