The 26-year-old returns to The Valley after Addicks boss Alan Curbishley decided he needed Lisbie at his disposal, with injuries currently in his attacking department.
Canaries boss Nigel Worthington was keen to extend his stay at Carrow Road, with Leon McKenzie, Peter Thorne and Dean Ashton all sidelined themselves with injury.
However, the hit-man will return to the Premiership club after a month-long stay with the East Anglian outfit.
"We would very much like to have kept Kevin longer, but at the same time we understand and respect Charlton's position," Canaries assistant manager Doug Livermore told the club's official website.
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Kevin for his time here and also Charlton for allowing him to join on loan in the first place."
