Sprinkle flour over onion mixture; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly with a whisk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Add cream cheese; stir with a whisk until cheese melts. Stir in lobster, juice, salt, and paprika. Spoon 1/2 cup lobster mixture into each bread shell; sprinkle each serving with 1/2 teaspoon chives. Serve immediately.
