The chef who was in Michael Jackson's home the day he died has filed a creditor's claim against the estate ... TMZ has learned.

Kai Chase -- through her company Kai Chase Incorporated -- has filed an $8,000 claim against the estate, alleging she got stiffed during two pay periods -- $4,000 for the period June 2 - June 10, and $4,000 for the period June 10 - June 25.

Chase has gone public since Michael Jackson's death, saying the morning the singer died she thought it was weird that Dr. Conrad Murray didn't come downstairs at his normal time in the AM.
