Prosciutto -- air-dried Italian ham -- has a sweet, salty taste and a pleasant aroma. Because it is so flavorful, a little goes a long way. Try serving these pork chops with Lemony Lima Beans with Parmesan.
Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Sprinkle thyme leaves over each, pressing, to help them adhere to the meat. Wrap 1 prosciutto slice around middle of each chop, like a belt; press ends to seal.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Cook chops until golden brown and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. (Cook in two batches, if necessary, to avoid crowding.) Serve chops with lemon wedges, if desired.
