Adding Recessed Light Fixtures

Electrical Question: I want to add some recessed lights, how should they be wired to the existing light fixture?

I want to install three recessed lights over my sink. There is only one set of wires in the existing box. What is the proper way to wire the other two? Can I connect my black and white wire from the existing box to the other two recessed lights? I am an auto mechanic and this is what I’d do in a 12volt circuit. What do you think?
