Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels. In a pie pan, combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with the flour mixture.
Put butter in a shallow baking pan; place in oven to melt. When butter is melted, arrange chicken in the baking pan in a single layer, skin side down. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes; turn pieces of chicken over and bake 15 minutes longer, or until chicken is tender and done.
