Karaage - Japanese Fried Chicken

I always love to cook and try something out new. I want my family to enjoy my cooking more and I know how my husband love fried chicken. So recently I decided to make Karaage, Japanese Fried Chicken. I used chicken thighs with skin on it, cause it taste better in one of the tutorial I followed the recipe. It turned out okay and it was pretty good. I need to add more flavor into the chicken in order for the flavor stand out. The only thing I didn't use in this recipe was sake, probably because of that the flavor of the chicken didn't stand out when I was eating it. Here's a pic of my Karaage. I normally love to eat this, but when I always ordered this dish it's a bit spicy for my liking and this dish can be a bit pricey.
