The ignition chip is separate from door remote, so at least you did not damage this one.
Repairing broken electronic board is doable, but not easy and reliability will suck.
I would order new key and use that one as spare. Still can open the door with blade.
You should have several dealers in your area, so finding one who will not mark up a key above $180 should be possible.
How much patching the other break did cost you? >>>> diamonds rings are way more expensive than keys.
