Remove spinach mixture from skillet, and set aside. Whisk together cream cheese, milk and flour in a small bowl. Whisk cream cheese mixture into skillet. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly and cook, whisking constantly, 20 seconds. Return spinach mixture to skillet, and stir to combine. Stir in shredded mozzarella cheese and cook 30 seconds.

Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each pork chop to form a pocket. Stuff about 1/3 cup spinach mixture into each chop. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wipe skillet clean, and heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high; cook 1 side of chops in hot oil 3 minutes. Flip pork over, and transfer to preheated oven. Bake until cheese is melted and a thermometer inserted in thickest part of pork (without touching stuffing) registers 140 degrees F, about 5 minutes. Transfer chops to a platter, and sprinkle with thyme. Let chops rest 5 minutes before serving.
