Heat oven to 425°. Put butter in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; place the pan in the oven to melt butter.
Meanwhile, mix flour, paprika, salt, and pepper. Coat chicken pieces with the dry mixture; place skin sides down in hot melted butter in baking pan.
Bake chicken, uncovered, for 35 minutes; turn chicken pieces. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until juices run clear from thickest pieces.
