Paint stripper will remove the paint from the chrome. Just apply and let it bubble. Wipe the paint off with a rag and acetone. Nothing rough or abrasive.
Hopefully nobody sanded the plating for adhesion. If it looks OK than just polish!

Citristrip (pink stuff from HD) is what I've used in the past and is pretty mild for a stripper.

I have used Easyoff oven cleaner on chrome very succesfully if the paint was of the rattle can variety. Spray, let sit and then wipe off.

I suppose you could always repaint them if they're to far gone after being stripped.
