Okay.

This should be on two 20A circuits per code. It doesn't have to be three and three, but you do need two 20A circuits serving the coutertop receptacles. One of these receptacles can be behind the range for the clock/sparker.

The microwave should be on a dedicated 20A circuit. Put the cabinet lights on with the other kitchen lighting; this circuit can be 15A so long as the max wattages of the light fixtures add up to 1800W or less.

What are the receptacles used for? If you plugged in a vacuum cleaner for example, it could trip off the breaker and lose a fridge full of food. I like to keep the fridge on dedicated.
