  1. Pound chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and shake to coat.

Editor's Note: One envelope of Hollandaise sauce mix prepared according to package directions may be substituted for the homemade sauce.
