In a bowl, stir together chicken, artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, sherry, and rosemary until well combined.
Spread chicken mixture evenly over 4 of the bread slices, top each with a slice of cheese, then with one of the remaining 4 slices of bread, pressing lightly to hold the sandwiches together.
In a pie pan, beat together eggs and milk until well blended.
Melt about 1 tablespoon of the butter in a wide frying pan over medium heat.
Meanwhile, dip 2 of the sandwiches in egg mixture to coat both sides; drain briefly.
Place in frying pan, cheese side down; cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides (about 5 minutes total).
Remove from pan and keep warm.
Repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches, adding more butter as needed.
Serve immediately; eat with knife and fork.
