Patching damaged/blown plaster in kitchen

Kitchen tiles off, mess created.

Pic attached. Plan (currently) is to tile the hob splashback, so I'm going to remove the old tile adhesive and tile up the central area once the kitchen and worktops are down. However, the areas either side I don't massively want to tile, but just have upstands either side against a painted wall. Kitchen goes in next week so I need to decide quickly.

My questions are:
  • If I were to attempt a patch repair, what type of plaster should I use on either side of the splashback? (I currently have bags of easifill, undercoat and multifinish, any of these suitable?). Some of the damaged plaster is 10-15mm deep.
  • Can tiles go straight onto the blown plaster in the central area with a good load of adhesive or should this also be patched prior to tiling?
  • Should I forget trying to patch and just aim to tile the whole lot once the units and worktops are in?
As usual any help much appreciated.
