3.Push half the butter mixture under chicken skins. Melt remaining butter; brush all over chickens.
4.Heat covered barbecue. Cook chickens, skin-side down, on barbecue, using direct heat, until browned lightly. Turn chickens, sprinkle with half the rosemary; cook, covered, using indirect heat, following manufacturer’s instructions, about 25 minutes. Serve sprinkled with remaining rosemary.
