Claudio Ranieri's side surged into a two-goal lead with Mario Stanic and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink doing the damage.
Gary Naysmith pulled a goal back for the hosts shortly before the interval and a half-time team-talk from fiery Scot David Moyes saw The Toffees come out firing on all cylinders.
Everton went close through Kevin Campbell as their London opponents defended for their lives.
David Unsworth was then sent off for Everton late on after a clash with Jesper Gronkjaer, who then notched a third for Chelsea to rub salt in the wounds of the Goodison Park faithful.
It is the second time Chelsea have defeated Everton in a week after defeating the Merseysiders 4-1 in the Worthington Cup.
