Youri Tielemans' 25-yard screamer stunned Wembley as Leicester fans lucky enough to be inside the stadium celebrated a first-ever FA Cup trophy.
Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga had no chance in keeping out the Belgian playmaker's spectacular strike into the top corner.
And Brendan Rodgers' men were able to hold on for the 1-0 win, even after experienced centre-half Jonny Evans had to go off injured.
Chelsea desperately sought an equaliser, and ex-Leicester defender Ben Chilwell came off the bench to head against the post.
Mason Mount also saw a half volley miraculously tipped round the post by Kasper Schmeichel with minutes to go.
And then to prove it simply was Leicester's day, VAR intervened to deny Chelsea's leveller because Chilwell was a hair offside.
