How do I convert from recessed lighting to regular lighting?

In the process of updating my kitchen, there are 2 recessed lights over bar and sink, and I want to add some kind of Pendant light if possible...any help would be much appreciated.

The scope of the project would be to remove the recessed fixtures, install electrical junction boxes, repair the drywall, and hang the new fixtures.

 

There are two kinds of recessed light fixtures - one for new work and one for old work.  The ones for new work are more far more complicated to remove because they're attached to the structure of your home.  You will likely have to remove some of the drywall to gain access to the fixture.  The old work kind come out pretty easily, just pull back the tabs.
