What's it called when you cook something I'm sauce/marinade until it's coated in glaze?

I first ran across this method when I was making a recipe for chicken wings called cocacola wings and I recently made some grilled chicken using similar method.

Basically I had some chicken chunks and I browned the outside then added like maybe half a cup of marinade to the pan and let it bubble and reduce while occasionally turning the chicken chunks. What you end up is like a grilled chicken with a sauce on it similar to like that bourbon chicken they sell at malls.

Just to clarify you cook it in the marinade until the marinade basically disappears and the pan is dry and the chicken is covered in glaze.

Can I sub powdered buttermilk for regular milk in chicken and dumplings?

What ended up happening was that I totally forgot about the milk at the end and ate a bowl to sample it. It was so freaking delicious, especially considering how few ingredients went into it. The dumplings are so good, they really soaked up the flavor so nicely.

This is going to be lunch tomorrow so I may or may not get some milk to add to it by the time I heat it back up. I bet the milk and/or some cream would be good in it. But I'm kind of digging the non-milk version too, more poor and rustic. We'll see.

Can I sub powdered buttermilk for regular milk in chicken and dumplings?

I'm making chicken and dumplings tonight so tomorrow they'll have that really good "sat in the fridge all night" taste when I serve them to company tomorrow. Not to mention that it makes it much easier, anyways...

The recipe calls for some regular milk to be added in at the very end of the recipe. Do you think it would be ok to mix up some of the powdered buttermilk with water and use that to add to dish right at the very end? I was planning on using the powdered buttermilk to make the dumplings with anyway.

If push comes to shove I'll go to the gas station and get some milk, but I'd rather avoid it since it's raining.
