Which Chrome browser version you're using exactly? So I just went around reading about the issue (of which I also experienced too), and realized it appears to be fixed already, at least for me.

As of now, there is no official way to see your Facebook friends on your phone's contacts app. There might be some hacks to get it done though, with some risky apps, which I strongly discourage using. -- Facebook has developed an app called Facebook Hello as an alternative contacts app. Try that, maybe.
