The kitchen requires two 20 amp circuits for the counter top receptacles.
These are known as small appliance branch circuits (SABC). The fact that you have additional circuits for the refrigerator, microwave, etc, will not count towards the 2 SABC requirement.

Lighting cannot be connected to the SABC's.

Before this project - thus when I bought the house , the kitchen only had one 20 amp circuit for the SBAC the fridge, dishwasher and microwave.

So this is an improvement - but like you said, may still not be up to code
