In a kitchen that is 10 x 23 ( this includes breakfast area) how many can lights would you put in. One contractor said 8 ... 5 in kitchen area 3 in breakfast . This new contractor says 8 is overkill ! Help me pitch my case .

What size cans are you installing? What wattage of bulb are you intending to use in the can? Varying these could have very different affects. A larger number of smaller cans with lower wattage bulbs, say 4 in, might distribute light more evenly. Where fewer 6 in cans may have more of a focus affect.

8 wouldn't be overkill if they are on a dimmer switch.

I agree, I don't think 8 is out of line, especially if you go with 4".
