Dip each chicken strip in melted margarine. Roll strips in the cornflake mixture, pressing to coat. Transfer chicken to the prepared pan. Make sure you do not crowd the pan so chicken will bake up crisp. Bake for 20 minutes.

While chicken is baking, prepare honey mustard dipping sauce: Combine mustard with honey in a small bowl. Mix well.
