Bennett has been at Molineux for two and a half years, and has made 19 appearances for Wolves in all competitions this season.
The 29-year-old will provide back-up to Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu while captain Wes Morgan is out injured.
"It's great to be here. It's a massive club and the league table doesn't lie," Bennett told Leicester's club website.
"The manager has taken the team to another level and the players deserve great credit too. The club is moving in a forward direction and it's really good to be part of it.
"I've experienced the atmosphere at King Power Stadium before too with Wolves and with Norwich City. It's a great environment here and it's a journey I'm looking forward to."
Meanwhile, Leicester defender Filip Benkovic has joined Bristol City on loan for the rest of the season.
The Championship promotion contenders saw off competition from Celtic, Derby and Middlesbrough to sign the 22-year-old Croatian centre-back.
