Undercabinet lighting - adding a dimmer switch

I'm thinking about adding undercabinet lighting in my kitchen. I'd like it direct wired and I'd like to be able to control the light with a dimmer switch.

Right now I have a GFCI outlet in the location I'd like to use to pull the power from. I'd like to be able to add a dimmer switch to this circuit. Is this possible?

I plan on using Progress Lighting's Hide-a-Lite X products with the xenon lights.

Receptacles that are part of the small appliance circuits (over counters) may not be used for lighting. Maybe there is a existing lighting circuit you can get power from? Like a light over the sink, or a switch or receptacle on a wall opposite of the kitchen?
