Cook chicken for 5-7 minutes on each side over medium heat until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
To make the sauce, keep the pan over medium heat and melt the butter. Add garlic and saute for a minute or so until fragrant. Add milk. Whisk in honey and dijon mustard and spicy brown until incorporated. Stir in paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper to taste.
