Chillenden is a village in the eastern part of Kent, England, between Canterbury and Deal. In the Domesday Book of 1086, it was recorded as 'Cilledene'. In 1800 the parish was made up of 160 acres (65 ha), containing three farms, one belonging to Mr. Hammond, and the other two to Sir Brook Bridges. In 1935 Chillenden ceased to be a civil parish. The area was absorbed into Goodnestone civil parish.

It was home to the families of Thomas Chillenden and William Chillenden, both Priors of Christ Church Priory, Canterbury, now known as Canterbury Cathedral.
