Engine Power Reduced

When driving today the traction control light came on then the display read engine power reduced and the CEL came on. After restart it drove fine but the CEL was still on. Any Ideas as to what could casue this?

Update: I took the Throttle Body off and it was full on gunk. Cleaned it up and reset the computer and no more problem.
