We present in this paper the discovery of an X-ray jet associated with the Crab-like supenova remnant G54.1+0.3. It points to the northeast with a length about 40" from the center of the nebula and has a flux similar to1/6 of the whole remnant. The X-ray jet is consistent with the radio extension to the northeast, suggesting that it is connected with the pulsar embedded in the remnant.
