1. Use your hands to flatten hen halves somewhat. Loosen skin of hens and rub rosemary and garlic under skin, spreading as much as possible with your fingers without tearing skin. Let hens stand 30 minutes at room temperature.
2. Prepare a medium fire in a barbecue grill or preheat broiler. Rub hen halves with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Grill or broil, turning once, until skin is richly browned and juices run clear when thigh is pricked with a knife tip, about 40 minutes.
3. Serve garnished with rosemary sprigs.
