Henry made his comeback from injury against Ipswich last weekend, after Jackett brought him on as a second-half substitute.
The 26-year-old was unable to inspire Wolves to a victory, with the match finishing as a 0-0 draw, but Jackett was still impressed with what he saw from the winger.
“James got on the ball and the crowd responded to him well,” Jackett said.
“Hopefully now he can get back and stay back and that will really help us.
“We have a number of players that have been out and hopefully now James can offer us the kind of creativity he has done previously.
“In the second period he did look a threat.”
Wolves have missed Henry in his absence, with the side’s attacking options severely limited.
The Midlands side are without the likes of Jordan Graham, Nouha Dicko and Jed Wallace at the moment - meaning Henry’s return will be very welcome.
The 26-year-old has played 35 times for Jackett’s men this season, and he has become an important part of their starting line-up.
Henry’s next chance to impress is likely to come in Wolves’ match against Milton Keynes Dons next weekend.
