You can probably achieve the desired effect by holding the stick relatively stationary, and making those quick adjustments with just the rudder.
I know you were probably taught that the ailerons roll the wing, and the rudder corrects for adverse yaw. But, here's an alternate way of thinking: rudder yaws the nose, and ailerons correct for adverse roll.
I actually do use rudder 90% of time for yaw management during slow flight ( landing , take off etc ) and hardly every for adverse yaw since there is barely any on my plane
