Because the breast is so much thicker than the legs and thighs, it thaws more slowly, so the breast and lower quarters will reach their (different) done temperatures at the same time. This is an ideal approach for people who have forgotten to thaw the turkey,or who have small refrigerators; it does fill up the oven a lot longer, though. Since there are no juices from the defrosted turkey, there will be no risk of cross-contamination (just be sure to wash your hands well). For a larger (19-20 lb) bird, add 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
