plaster wall surface

I have a situation in my kitchen. The walls are plaster, and the latex paint does not seem to be well adhered ... it appears there was no primer used, and does not look like the original paint. I discovered this by peeling a small blistered area, which turned into a big nightmare. The rest of the paint will not come off so easily, but the edges are loose. Looks like an unfinished jigsaw puzzle. Problem not due to moisture, just bad adhesion to plaster surface.

Anyway, I'm looking for the cleanest, easiest way to prep the wall for new paint, without having to peel every square inch of the old. I want to have a uniform surface when I'm done, and am trying to avoid any sanding, chemicals, skim coats, dust, etc.

I wondered if applying a primer sealer w/ a texturized roller or spongue would help hide the peel and penetrate the old paint? Actually - any ideas and product recommendations would be much appreciated!
