Mix crab seasoning, pepper, and flour in a bowl. Add chicken strips, and toss well to coat evenly. Combine milk and egg white in a separate bowl, and mix well. Pour over seasoned chicken, and toss well. Place crushed cornflakes in a separate bowl. Dip each chicken strip into the cornflakes, and coat well. Place strips on a nonstick baking sheet. (Discard any leftover cornflake mixture.) Bake chicken strips for 10–12 minutes (to a minimum internal temperature of 165 ºF).  Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by combining all ingredients and mixing well. Serve three chicken strips with ¼ cup dipping sauce.
