Preheat oven to 190°C/ 365°F.
Transfer chicken tenders to a large bowl, then add salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper and smoked paprika and mix until coated.
Beat your eggs in a medium bowl and add cornflakes to a separate large bowl - using your hands, crunch some of the cornflakes into smaller pieces and crumbs, this will help coat the chicken completely. Dip each chicken tender in egg wash, then coat in cornflakes, before transferring to a lined baking tray. Spray with olive oil spray all over, then bake for 15-20 mins.
Meanwhile, mix together all Honey BBQ sauce ingredients until fully combined. Heat the sauce on low-medium heat in a non-stick pan, once the sauce starts bubbling and thickens, remove from heat and transfer to a small dish.
Dip chicken tenders in Honey BBQ sauce until coated all over. Garnish with spring onion
