The 26-year-old was on the radar of some of Europe's biggest clubs after starring in Leicester City's shock Premier League title-winning campaign of 2015-16.
However, Kante turned down a move to PSG and instead linked up with Antonio Conte's Blues, who went on to become champions of England come the end of the season.
"Do I regret that I rejected PSG? No," Kante told French outlet Le10Sport.
"When I was in Leicester, I had opportunities, but my priority was to stay in the Premier League.
"When Chelsea contacted me, I spoke with the coach and the feeling was good between us."
Kante is expected to face a spell on the sidelines after injuring his thigh in France's 1-0 win over Bulgaria on Saturday.
