Insulating a plaster wall

I own a house that was built in 1910 and I am currently remodeling the kitchen on a very limited budget. I tore down the plaster & lathe and I am ready to insulate the exterior walls. I noticed that there is more of what looks like plaster on the outside walls before the siding and that it comes back on the 2x4 studs a little bit. What kind/thickness of insulation should I be using? Should I be careful not to put too much pressure on that plaster?

Thank you!
