Sous vide turkey is underdone. How can I salvage it in 3 hours?

I'm cooking my turkey sous vide (started yesterday afternoon), with the legs going in at 155F around 3pm yesterday and then the breasts going in at 135F around 3am. I just pulled the meat out to check, and while the breasts look great, the legs look and the legs still look very underdone (light pink hue and soft to the touch). Can I finish the legs in the oven? What temp and for how long? (BTW, these are 4 legs/thighs from two 14lbs birds.) Thanks!

You can definitely finish the legs in the oven! Just separate them from the rest of the bird, put them on a baking sheet, skin side up, and put them in a 350F oven. Since I don't know how close they are to being cooked, I can't give you a time estimate; you'll need to monitor them to get them to the right temperature, but the good news is that it's very difficult to overcook dark meat!
