My kitchen cabinets are stained and covered in polyurethane. Can I paint over that?

Polyurethane varnishes will have an amount of sterates in them which sometimes cause adhesion problems for finish coatings.

My recommendation would be for you to use TSP as a first cleaner. Prime with a primer recommended by your local paint dealer. Apply two finish coats and enjoy your new cabinets.
