Try using BIX PAINT AND STAIN REMOVER. I've used it many times on wood veneered surfaces, as well as, hardwood. You apply a heavy a coat as possible and let it stand for at least 5 minutes. Then using a plastic spatula that you can usually find on the same isle as the removers, the paint can be scraped right off. It's a pretty good product. For any tough areas, you can use a scrub brush or tooth brush, dipped in the remover to get the paint out of any seems or scratched areas, assuming your cabinets are veneered. Try to avoid using a brush on hardwood surfaces if you don't want to have to sand. Depending on the wood, they can scuff it up pretty good.
