Brine the chicken: Fill a medium bowl with lukewarm water. Sprinkle some salt in. Soak the chicken breasts in the salted water for 15 minutes. (This purpose of this is for better flavor – if you are short on time, you can skip this.)
Bake the chicken: Pat the chicken dry. Transfer to a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle thoroughly with paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Let the chicken rest before slicing.
Pasta: Cook to package directions. Toss with oil and set aside.
Sauce: Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic; saute for about 2 minutes. Add the flour; cook for about 2 minutes. Add the wine; stir and let it sizzle out. Add the broth, a little at a time, stirring between each addition. Add the paprika and the cream. Stir until bubbly and creamy enough to coat the back of a spoon. Season to taste with salt and lemon juice.
Assembly: Toss the pasta with the creamy sauce. Arrange a sliced chicken breast on top. Sprinkle with parsley or red pepper flakes.
