Here's how I do it:
to begin the taxi I push the throttle to about 50% and as soon as the plane starts rolling I decrease the thrust nearly to the minimum to maintain a speed of 12-15 knots, to turn (90°) I decrease the speed to 5 knots and as soon as I start turning I add a little bit of power just to keep rolling.

Differential Braking is good, but usually not recommended of your aircraft has bogey main gear. If you are flying a three or four engined aircraft, differential thrust is good. On my CH yoke, if I'm flying a twinjet, I'll assign the prop lever to be the #2 engine throttle, and with tri-jets, Ill assign the mixture axis to the third engine (I'm just kinda screwed if I fly a 4 engined jet, I have to control all 4 with 1 lever) so I can independently control each engine.
