Preheat oven to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C).


In a nylon bag, place the flour, paprika and chicken and gently shake the bag until the flour covers all the chicken.


In a saucepan, mix the butter with the chicken mixture and put it in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender.
