Tell me I can cook fried chicken?!?!

I honestly think I have gotten myself into a bind. My son wants to cook fried chicken for fathers day. I said (foolishly) that we could. I am scared and I may burn my house down and that would be not an awesome father's day gift.
Is there a recipe that is easy and may limit my chances of huge infernos? I have a dutch oven that I think I can use but, no thermometer.
