That chain looks intact to me. Have a closer look, but seems ok.

What worries me more is bits ending up inside where they shouldn't be.

If the chain was broken then there is a very high probability there are some valves bent.
A compression test will tell if any are bent. When a valve is bent there will be almost zero compression.
Valves for those engines are expensive if you can find one. Try to find a complete engine it will be the easy way to get back on the road.

With that much externally visible damage I would have the cylinder head off, as well as the oil pan, for a careful internal look before thinking any thoughts of spinning over the motor.

The Pic looks like the camchain is intact and the camchain guide has been broken as well as the tappet cover, either way there must be foreign matter in the engine by now, I'd pull it apart before anything else, off with the tappet cover and the camchain cover and see what may have went inside the engine.
