Re: Small Kitchen and 2 Required Circuit Questions?
Definition from the 2008 NEC
Kitchen An area with a sink and permanent facilities for food preparation and cooking.
So I would say it is not a kitchen. You would still need to install outlets to meet the minimum 6 Ft. spacing requirements and AFCI or GFCI requirements.
If it were me, I would have one circuit for overhead lights and at least 2 for outlets. You might consider submitting a wiring plan and getting it approved when applying for the permit
