Need help wiring light switch and two receptacles

I have a light above the kitchen sink which I need to wire to a switch. I would also like to run two outlets off the same hot. What's the best way to do this keeping everything independent?

Countertop receptacles (Small Appliance Branch Circuits) in the kitchen must by code be on dedicated 20 amp circuits with no other loads such as lights.

One way is one 15 amp circuit and one 20 amp circuit from the breaker box. Or you could tie the light into an existing light circuit and just run a new circuit for the receptacles or if you already have the code mandated two SABCs you could add them to those.
