Question Soap Dish Replacement Question

While removing mildewed caulking around my tub, I decided to replace the old soap dish - a semi-recessed (1.25") curved metal one that fills 1 tile space (6" X 4.25"). After removing the plaster directly behind it, I'm left with a hole with roughly an inch strip of uneven cement on the left & right, and in the center the old rusted chicken wire with broken paper behind it (the next wall is another 3.5" behind). The only wood is behind the upper right corner at a 45 degree angle.
My preference would be to fill this hole and replace with a ceramic surface mounting soap dish. This would seem more watertight since I'm trying to clean out all mold & mildew. The hole is roughly .5" deep on the sides to 1" deep in the center (measuring to the back of the surrounding tiles).
What's the best way to fill this hole to insure a flush mounting surface?
Or, what would you do? Any advice would be appreciated - I'm completely inexperienced with tiling and materials!
