French fries on stove top because my oven is broken? I don't want to die.

I have maybe three cups of olive oil, though I'd prefer not to use too much of it. (Can I fry but not deeeep fry?) I have a bag of frozen french fries. I have a small-to-medium dutch oven with a lid. I have a stove top. I have a plastic spoon and hardwood spatula thingy.
I have a tendency to burn and maim myself in the kitchen. Please help me make this a happy story.
Do I need additional tools?
What is a reasonable sequence of steps to minimize spattering and potential for horrific accidents?
(google--skillet french fries, stove top french fries, range french fries+safety--was not too helpful, and had no tips to avoid oil splattered into my eyes and death)
