   Wash chickens and wipe dry. Season with salt and
   pepper. Arrange, skin side down, on a grill or broiler
   rack. Brush well with butter. Put in a preheated
   broiler and cook under medium heat for 50 to 60 mins
   or until tender, brushing occasionally with butter.
   Turn a few times during cooking. While chicken is
   cooking, combine plums, garlic, coriander or parsley
   and red pepper in a sauce pan; season with salt and
   pepper. Cook on the stove long enough to heat through.
   To serve, arrange chicken on a platter and garnish
   with tomatoes and cucumbers. Serve sauce separately to
   pour over chicken. NOTES : In southern Russia, a
   favorite method of preparing poultry is to
   :         serve either spitted or broiled chicken with
   a sauce made with
   :         green gooseberries, pounded walnuts,
   sourcream or fruits. One of
   :         the most typical sauces is tkemali, which is
   made with a base of
   :         wild or sour plums that grow only in the
   Georgian republic.  It
   :         is not possible to duplicate the recipe
   outside of the region,
   :         but a good substitute can be attempted. This
   is an excellent
   :         entree for an outdoor meal.
